Schuylkill County Sheriff Session Docket

 Collection
Identifier: SC MS 0338.MS
Abstract

A documentation of court history of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, infamously known as the site of the activities of the Molly Maguires, a secret society primarily of Irish miners who riot against anthracite coalmine owners in the mid-1800s. Although the time frame of this court history was before the real "crime wave" that appeared in the anthracite mine area, it is indicative of the labor unrest prevailing throughout the citizenry in the Pennsylvania coalfields.

Dates: 1858-1861
