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

The Homestead Steel Strike and the Growth of America as an Industrial Power is a one week workshop open to K-12 teachers, school administrators, home schooling parents, and graduate students in educations. The workshop, scheduled for July 11-17 and July 18-26, 2021, is funded by The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and will give participants the chance to immerse themselves in the battle from both sides by examining primary sources related to Carnegie and Frick’s business practices, worker conditions, the direct aftermath of the battle, and what came in later years as U.S. business took stock of the relationship between management and labor.
