Pittsburgh
The Story of a City, 1750–1865

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.

Leland D. Baldwin was assistant director of the Western Pennsylvania Historical Survey and professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh.
”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 (Pa.) Herald

“An absorbing story. . . . It provides in brief compass a ‘vivid movie’ of the city’s past with due regard for the relative importance of people, events, and the growths of neighborhoods.”—Hervey Allen
