PBS documentary to explore Calumet's Italian Hall disaster

The Italian Hall disaster during copper mine strikes in 1913 in Calumet is still talked about today in the U.P, and that story will be told to a much larger audience with an upcoming PBS documentary.
 
Excerpt: The documentary is "Red Metal: The Copper Country Strike of 1913." It's an examination of the miners' strike 100 years ago in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
 
It's something Steve Lehto knows a little something about, which led to him being a historical consultant on the film. He's promoting it throughout the state before it airs for the first time on PBS Dec. 17 at 8 p.m.
