|Hollygrove was once called tent city. Coal miners lived in tents and worked hard to provide for what little they made. The miners had enough and started the coal mine wars. The term "red neck" comes from the miners wearing red bandanas around their necks during the war. The bull moose special was the train that ran the coal out of the town. One night they mounted a Gatling gun on the train and opened fire on the miners.|
