The Homestead Steel Strike and the Growth of America as an Industrial Power

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on the Homestead Steel Strike.

The Homestead Steel Strike and the Growth of America as an Industrial Power is a one week workshop (offered twice) that will provide teachers with a full accounting of the circumstances that led to the Battle of Homestead and what its lasting impact has been in the United States. This program will provide a framework for participants to immerse themselves in the battle from both sides by examining primary sources, listening to lectures by leading historians and scholars, and visiting historic sites including the Original Homestead Works Pump House, the Bost Building, which served as headquarters for the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers, and The Carrie Furnace, which produced iron for the Homestead Works from 1907 to 1978.
