The Meet, Greet, Commemorate event with actor-activist Mark Rylance as guest of honor, acknowledges the 125th anniversary of the Battle of Homestead, when thousands of locked-out steel workers and townspeople clashed with Pinkerton guards hired by Henry Clay Frick and Andrew Carnegie. Rylance calls it "a story worthy of Shakespere." Rylance will meet guests, who can tour the steelmaking exhibits and artifacts at the historic Bost Building. The evening features light fare, drinks, and songs led by local musician Jason Kendall.
