After enduring three devastating floods, residents have adopted the phrase This town wont die as a testament to their gritty determination to survive and to be seen as more than flood victims. Johnstown records the true American Dream: the faces of immigrants building their lives in a new country- the expansive golden age of American industrial growth in the steel, mining, and railroad industries- a communitys iron will in the face of destruction- and a snapshot of human bonds through love for family and nation, as well as an inherent faith.
