Steel : The Story of Pittsburgh's Iron & Steel Industry, 1852-1902 (Paperback) (Dale Richard Perelman)
About this item
Steel portrays the growth of the iron and steel industry in smoke-filled Pittsburgh during the nineteenth century. This fast-paced saga tells the story of millionaire steel titans Andrew Carnegie, Ben Franklin Jones, Henry Clay Frick, Henry Phipps and Charles Schwab—strong-willed men who often plotted and schemed against each other, yet united against their underpaid and undervalued pro-union immigrant workforce. The juxtaposition of the haves and the have-nots produced bloody battles that exploded throughout Western Pennsylvania’s plants, mines and railroad yards.
