Dawson, New Mexico
The inscriptions on the grave markers in this ghost town cemetery show that laborers from many countries worked in the coal mines here. Some of the worst mining disasters in American history occurred here. 263 miners were killed in an October 1913 explosion, and another 123 perished in a 1923 accident.
