In 1832, dozens of Irish immigrants worked to build railroad tracks in West Chester, Pennsylvania, in a valley called Duffy’s Cut. Within weeks, all 57 men were dead. Was it an epidemic that killed them, or could they have been murdered? Watch Death on the Railroad, a PBS documentary that explores this mystery using DNA studies, forensic analysis, and other scientific and historical investigative techniques. Then, join a discussion led by Dr. Bill Watson, who first uncovered this story along with his colleagues Frank Watson and Earl Schandelmeier.
