The Homestead Strike
I came across this information while searching for Homestead information and found it to be a twist in what one would normally think of in terms of Homesteads. Homestead, Pa is a mill town that in 1892 strike that changed and hurt a lot of people including Steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. You can read a summary of the strike here from PBS American Experience but you can also read a more detailed account Homestead: A complete history of the struggle of July, 1892 by Arthur Gordon Burgoyne ©1893.
