Coal and Iron Police at the Pressed Steel Car Works, McKees Rocks, Pa. (via)
On This Day in Pittsburgh History: July 15, 1909
Rioting workers of the Pressed Steel Car Company, near McKees Rocks, clashed with guards; Coal and Iron Police and State Constabulary were called out; many strikers were wounded by volleys of buckshot fired to halt their charges; state police were ordered to “shoot to kill” if attacked by strikers.
