    My father would have shown it to me as a plant that made Jeeps, even though it was the plant, not the product, that my grandfather had worked with. By 1941, the family was back in the coal fields in Indiana.  I was last told this at least thirty years ago, so it makes sense that I would get it a bit scrambled.

    I've always wanted to go to the UAW Archives and look him up.  It was actually a predecessor union that organized this plant, as the story was told to me.

    Five years after I chose my username, happily living somewhere else.
