We tell you the stories that changed the world. ●The infamous Homestead strike, and the worst day in American labor history. ●The man who was elected mayor while he was in jail. ●How Major James Grant sent hundreds of soldiers to their deaths in one of the stupidest attacks in military history--and even after the French captured him, he wrote to his commanding General asking for a promotion (and, yes, Grant Street is named after him). ●How George Westinghouse gave his revolutionary air brake a hair-raising, unplanned tryout--to save a man's life. ●The time when Pittsburghers prevented a full-blown civil war at the high water mark of the Whiskey Rebellion--by throwing a picnic and getting the rebels drunk. ●How abolitionists launched the national Republican Party in Pittsburgh to stop the spread of slavery. ●We'll show you the site downtown where the modern zombie craze was born -- fans of "Walking Dead" et al. take note. ●We'll show you where the Lewis and Clark expedition really started--and tell you the unbelievable story of why Meriwether Lewis couldn't wait to get out of Pittsburgh. And much more. This is Pittsburgh history on steroids!
