Pittsburgh was born in a colonial era power struggle between two superpowers who knew that whoever controlled the Point — where three rivers meet — would control the continent. Our city became an industrial colossus that built a mighty nation. It is the city of Carnegie, Frick, Westinghouse and Heinz; the cradle of the American labor movement; a main terminal of the Underground Railroad; the high water mark of the Whiskey Rebellion; and the birthplace of the national Republican Party, started here to stop the spread of slavery. Native son and historian David McCullough said it best: Pittsburgh is the indispensable American city.
