Ghost Story Uncovers Mass Grave

There have always been ghost stories surrounding the Main Line Mine incident in Pennsylvania, but few suspected that these ghost stories would in time actually lead to the discovery of a mass grave. And even when the mass grave was discovered, no one would have suspected those buried at the site would have been murdered under suspicious circumstances some 200 years ago.

The story begins almost a world away on a ship known as the John Stamp arriving for the United States loaded with Irish immigrants bent on building a new life in America.  As they disembarked from the ship with the Statue of Liberty seen in the distance, several Irish workers would meet the man who would ultimately lead them down a short road to their deaths.
