So you think you know Pittsburgh? Think again. Join us on a jaw-dropping “virtual” tour where we’ll visit–through pictures and stories–sites that changed the world. Brought to you by the creators of Haunted Pittsburgh!

Doors/Bar open: 6:30PM | Show: 7:30PM
Event is 16+

Haydn Thomas, the dean of Pittsburgh tour guides, will virtually take you to:

●Where Major James Grant sent hundreds of soldiers to their deaths in one of the stupidest attacks in military history (and, yes, Grant Street is named after him).

●Where a lookout spotted Pinkerton guards on their way to the infamous Homestead strike–the lookout warned the strikers, and the result was the worst day in American labor history.

●Where George Westinghouse’s revolutionary air brake was given a hair-raising, unplanned tryout–to save a man’s life.

●Where Pittsburghers prevented a full-blown civil war at the high water mark of the Whiskey Rebellion–by throwing a picnic and getting the rebels drunk.

●Where abolitionists decided to launch the national Republican Party to stop the spread of slavery.

●Where the modern zombie craze was born — fans of “Walking Dead” et al. take note.

●Where the Lewis and Clark expedition really started.

And much more!
