I went to a preview of Tile Film of Dublin's new documentary Death on the Railroad, an episode of Secrets of the Dead, is airing nationally Wednesday May 8th, 2013 at 10 PM on Chanel 13 in New York and Chanel 12 (WHYY) in Philadelphia. Do NOT miss this. It tells the unbelievable story of the death of 57 Irish Railroad workers on Mile 59 of the railroad being built in bucolic Chester County. The historical event has been called Duffy's Cut - named after the brutal Donegal born Irish contractor Philip Duffy who did nothing about the brutal death of his men. The Watson brothers,Drs. Bill and Frank Watson, history professors have spent over 10 years uncovering the brutal truth - it was not cholera that killed the men at all - many if not all were murdered. Here is the link:
