Based on the legendary organization known as the Molly Maguires and the events that occurred in the PA Anthracite (Hard) Coal Region from 1862 through 1889 (1874 – 1879 ).

On June 21, 1877, in Schuylkill County, PA, eight men were executed by court order. All were said to be members of the “Molly Maguires.”At the same time there was a fraternal society known as the “Ancient Order of Hibernians,” to which most Irishmen belonged. The intermingling of the two groups has a long confused history, although their only proven connection was that all members of both organizations were Irish.Legend has it that a secret society was formed during the latter half of the 19th Century by the Irish coal miners of the anthracite region of PA – The Molly Maguires.

The name is said to have been derived from a woman in Ireland named Molly Maguire, she used Irishmen to apply physical force against her land oppressors.According to legend, the Irish hard coal miners organized this group for the planning and execution of a concerted program of physical violence against those whom the miners considered their oppressors, including mine owners and mine executives, and the special “police” under the company control.We will never know how many were innocent and unjustly accused as none of the accused spoke out, only those that first said that they did the crime themselves and than recanted their stories spoke out and pointed to others to gain their own freedom.
