Man Of Steel, Man of Might

Man Of Steel, Man Of Might: Arizona's John Henry Lewis:

John Henry is a black man who has been portrayed as a real man and also as myth. Be he real or a myth he is represented in song as a man of strength who helped in the building of laying tracks for railroads.

A steel driving man they say bigger than life. He was said to weld a 30 or 40 lb hammer as he raced along side steam powered drills. He and others like him used hammers and other tools to forge through mountains and rock. He died doing what he did best. Driving Steel !!!

This leads me to another John Henry. John Henry Lewis!.
