An image of National Guardsmen drilling on a hill in Homestead, during the waning days of the 1892 Homestead Strike. After the National Guard was mustered by Pennsylvania Governor Pattison and sent to Homestead, the soldiers quickly put the town under martial law and forced strikers to allow workers to enter the Homestead Works. The Bost Building, headquarters for the strikers, is visible in the center-left of the picture.
