Industrialization and Immigration
With industrialists such as Carnegie and Frick calling Pittsburgh home and the fast pace of the area’s industrialization, it is no wonder that Western Pennsylvania has been the site of many nationally important strikes and labor negotiations. Students will use archival materials, historic photographs, and museum artifacts to explore stories of the Homestead Strike and labor disputes in the local glass industry.
