The Homestead Strike of 1892 is one of the most important moments in American labor history, highlighting the need for labor rights and better working conditions. Using the University of Pittsburgh Archives, this project looks at the experiences of the strikers of the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers (AAISW) and the Pinkerton detectives during the strike, as well as what motivated strikers and management in the events leading up to the violent encounter.
