Barnes-Hecker: Memories Of A Misfortune #NMUVHS0001
Barnes-Hecker: Memories Of A Misfortune
Northern Michigan University

 The film, Barnes-Hecker: Memories Of A Misfortune is based on the book "No Tears In Heaven" by Thomas G. Friggens and tells the true story of Marquette County's 1926 Mine Disaster.  On a cold November day in 1926, fifty-one miners went to work in a western Marquette County iron ore mine in Michigan's upper peninsula and never came home.  While working on several different levels of this 1,000 feet deep mine, the structure suffered a massive cave in, which sealed the fate of the miners who were fathers, brothers and sons of families living in Marquette County.  The viewer of this documentary will hear the stories of some of the miners as told through their descendants.  You'll also hear stories of the widows who went on to raise their families and an account of how one man managed to make it out alive by climbing up an eight hundred foot ladder to the surface of the mine.  "Barnes-Hecker: Memories Of A Misfortune" is sure to appeal to anyone interested in mining or Michigan history.  Narrator's name not given.  Full screen in color.  Released in 2001.  Runtime 35 minutes.
