DYNAMITE! A Blasters Historychronicles J. Nelson McConahys personal experiences working at the American Cyanamids powder mill in Edinburg, Pennsylvania during the late 1960s. A major explosion at the mill in 1964 eventually led to the closing of the plant in 1971. The end results of this dramatic event were the loss of good paying labor jobs in an otherwise economically depressed rural area of the Mahoning Valley and the passing of a way of life that respected family values and relied friendship loyalties.
