Fascinating history of a long-forgotten train wreck that killed 35 men and injured many more when an L&N train carrying Army inductees jumped the track near Jellico, Tennessee and plunged into Clear Fork Canyon. The author interviewed survivors, railroad personnel, and local residents as well as studying accident reports and newspaper accounts in order to determine what really happened that fateful day. The accident was the subject of a country song, "Wreck on the L&N Railroad," sung by the original Phipps Family. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. 220 pages.
