Tis a sad celebration, a dark celebration of an important event in labor history, when Pinks attack
Beginning on July 6, the Homesteaders strike
From the Daily Bleed 1892 -- US: State militia move in to break 12-day strike
against Carnegie Steel Corp. in Homestead, PA. Strikers,
protesting wage cuts of 18-26%, suffered seven deaths
in attacks on them by the Pinks ( Pinkerton detectives).
Ending on July 23rd.
Three Pinker ton men and eleven strikers and spectators died. Where are we today?
