Our Families in the Battle of Homestead

August 26 at 2:00 PM

Presentation by author Trilby Busch. “Darkness Visible: A Novel of the 1892 Homestead Strike” recreates the experiences of the workers and townspeople who witnessed the strike and battle firsthand. The author’s great-grandfather was killed in the Homestead Works in the immediate aftermath of the strike. A Steel Valley native, Trilby Busch will show how the novel weaves oral history and research into a insider’s view of the dramatic events unfolding in 1892. Descendants of members of the strike committee and of strikers will also share their family stories.
