This rarely-performed script, based on documentary sources, was premiered at the Braddock Library 25 years ago.  It documents and dramatizes the largest strike in American history up to that time, a violent yet inspiring clash that raised issues that resonate to this day:  migration and immigration, race and nationality, patriotism and free speech, and workers’ rights.

Dave Demarest was a founding member of the Battle of Homestead Foundation.
