Scale Model of Battle Scene

Designer Don Sentner of Design Specialties was commissioned to build a scale model of the battle scene. The 3 by 5 foot Model pictures the original Pump House as it was in 1892, the railroad tracks that faced the river and the location of the attempted Pinkerton landing from the barges. Steel billets from which workers and townspeople returned fire are also shown with lighting that enables visitors to follow the course of the battle.The model is interactive, allowing viewers to see what happened and when, by pressing tagged buttons on the front of the display to light up the action. The model is currently on display at USW headquarters in Pittsburgh.
