The doomed Whiskey Rebellion, the Great Fire that destroyed a third of the city in 1845 and Lincoln’s speech urging residents to shun talk of secession—all have made the pages of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and its predecessors. Since 1786, the paper has covered local events, and reporter Len Barcousky is a part of this long tradition. This collection of his “Eyewitness” columns draws on next-day stories to tell the history of the city, from President Coolidge’s almost-silent visit in 1927 to a report on the first woman hanged in Allegheny County. Join Barcousky as he vividly recounts the compelling history of the Steel City.
