The Pump House
The Homestead strike, also known as the Homestead Steel strike, Pinkerton rebellion, or Homestead massacre, was an industrial lockout and strike which began on June 30, 1892, culminating in a battle between strikers and private security agents, The Pinkertons. The battle was one of the most serious disputes in U.S. labor history.
Gunfights broke out between The Strikers and the Pinkertons who were brought in by boat from Boston. The Pump House was the primary battleground for the gunfights that broke out.
In all, nine strikers and seven Pinkertons were killed; many strikers and most of the remaining Pinkertons were injured, some seriously. The sheriff, unable to recruit local residents against the strikers, appealed to Governor William Stone for support; eight thousand militia arrived on July 12.
