SLUMGULLION HILL

SLUMGULLION HILL. Men died in shafts that went down in Virginia. In THE BIG BONANZA, Dan DeQuille wrote about tumbling from the lift–falling asleep. The lifts often had no gates. The air was hot. And the night before may have been a spree. Today, nobody seems to talk about the miners and muckers. Virginia City is all about Hollywood cowboys doing shoot em ups.
