Homestead Strike definitions

Britannica Concise

U.S. labor strike at A. Carnegie's steelworks in Homestead, Pa., in July 1892. When the Amalgamated Assn. of Iron and Steel Workers went on strike following a wage cut, the company's manager, H. C. Frick, hired strikebreakers, with Pinkerton Agency detectives to protect them. A gun battle resulted, in which several people were killed and many injured; the governor sent state militiamen to support the company. The broken strike represented a major setback to the union movement that was felt for decades.
