Pittsburgh

The Story of a City, 1780-1865

A good piece of Americana. It is the kind of book a historian will like, and the ordinary reader will find it solid hard-hitting history.
Sewickley Herald, PA

The standard history of Pittsburgh tells the city’s story from its violent days as an eighteenth-century outpost of empire to the onset of its great age of industrial expansion.
