Professor Incredible’s Long Lost Pittsburgh History Tour 


SO, YOU THINK YOU KNOW PITTSBURGH? 

Brought to you by the creators of Haunted Pittsburgh, join us for a jaw-dropping, hilarious “virtual” tour into Pittsburgh's astounding, largely unknown past. Hear tales of:

 

●The infamous Homestead strike, and the worst day in American labor history.

 ●How Major James Grant sent hundreds of soldiers to their deaths in one of the stupidest attacks in military history--and even after the French captured him, he wrote to his commanding General asking for a promotion (and, yes, Grant Street is named after him).

 

 ●How George Westinghouse gave his revolutionary air brake a hair-raising, unplanned tryout--to save a man's life.

 ●The time when Pittsburghers prevented a full-blown civil war at the high water mark of the Whiskey Rebellion--by throwing a picnic and getting the rebels drunk.

 

And much more! (No ghost stories- just fascinating Pittsburgh history!)
