Iron Industry in Pennsylvania: With a Listing of National, State, and Private Sites Related to the Pennsylvania Iron Industry and Open to the Public
Gerald G. Eggert (au)
No State played a greater part in the industrialization of the nation than PA. It pioneered most of the nationís basic industries: iron, steel, timber, coal, oil, and railroads. This document sketches the history of the foremost of those early industries, iron manufacture, beginning with construction of the first iron forge in PA in 1716. It traces ironmaking to its subsumption by steel midway through the 20th cent. This book deals with the major aspects of ironmaking: the industryís pioneers, its geographic spread, its changing technology, the iron trade, industrial org., labor unions, and how the industry affected the lives of the people in it: ironmasters, iron workers, and their families. Relates iron productionís contribution to the economies of both PA and the nation. Illustrations.
