This film is gripping account of the summer of 1892, in which a bitter conflict erupted at the Carnegie Works in Homestead, Pennsylvania. The nation’s largest steel maker took on its most militant labor union, with devastating consequences for American workers. Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick head a fascinating cast of characters, which includes 300 armed Pinkerton guards and a would-be anarchist assassin. This American tragedy still resonates 125 years later, especially in communities hard hit by the decline of heavy industry and labor’s diminishing clout. Also, Jimmy Kelly will lead a sing-along song salute to Woody Guthrie.
