"Monongah Remembered provides an intricate look at the nation's worst coal mine disaster, weaving together the historical realities of early
20th century mining, a community devastated by the human destruction, and the ordeal of immigrant miner families. "

A reminder: The Battle of Homestead Foundation is extremely fortunate to have a program about miners and their history as our next event. The recent mining tragedy in West Virginia makes our program all the more timely.

On Sunday, June 6, at 1:30 p.m. we will feature *Peter Argentine's 25-minute film, "Monongah Remembered," * about the 1907 West Virginia mining accident that resulted in more fatalities than any other mining accident in U.S.history, followed by *Bette McDevitt's presentation, "The Miners' Clinics." * Argentine made his film in time for the centennial anniversary of the dreadful event when the immigrant mining victims were remembered and honored. McDevitt will speak about the innovative miners clinics, created in the mining towns of the Alle-Kiski Valley after World War 2 as a result of the United Mine Workers of America's Welfare and Retirement Fund. Peter Argentine will offer his perspective on the film, and *Dr. Dan and Anita Fine*, who worked in the clinics, will talk about their experiences.

As always, our program is free and held at the Pump House (the historic site of the 1892 Homestead strike), located at 880 East Waterfront Drive, near Rankin bridge, in Munhall. We hope you can come and bring some friends!
