John Henry - told by Jesse Williams

My story is about John Henry. John Henry was a steel driller at an underground railroad. Every day he would drill steel plates and he drilled 24 plates in one hour. The day came and a salesman came to give John Henry a big yellow steel driller machine. It could drill faster than any steel drill. So John Henry started to drill to see if the machine would work. So it was a deal and John Henry started to drill again. The crowd started to cheer, so they cheered and cheered and cheered until it was a great comotion. What the crowd didn't know was that John Henry was on the ground with a big bang. Then the crowd stopped cheering. A guard rushed over to his side but was too late. The greatest driller in the railroad was dead.
