Pittsburgh is a city in Western Pennsylvania, United States, and the county seat of Allegheny County. Until the later part of the 20th century, it was a major industrial city, a mainstay of the American economy.

Pittsburgh in Joe SteeleEdit

Mike Sullivan wondered why Pennsylvania located its capital in Harrisburg, when Philadelphia and Pittsburgh were much larger and more notable cities[1].

Pittsburgh in Southern VictoryEdit

Pittsburgh was the setting for a major battle between the Confederate States and the United States in 1942-3, during the Second Great War. The battle left the city a broken ruin, but halted the Confederate offensive and proved a decisive victory for the U.S.

Pittsburgh in State of JeffersonEdit

Reggie Pesky was from Pittsburgh. Occasionally he would lapse into Pittsburgh slang, such as saying "yunz" for "you all." He explained to Jefferson Governor Bill Williamson that people who spoke like this were called "yunzers."[2]

Pittsburgh in The Two GeorgesEdit

Governor-General Sir Martin Luther King made a speech in Pittsburgh following the theft of The Two Georges, pledging every possible effort to recover the painting.[3]

While Thomas Bushell was in pursuit of the same painting, his train made a stop in Pittsburgh, en route from Doshoweh to Charleroi. The city, heart of Pennsylvania's industrial region, had an atmosphere which made New Liverpool air look and smell clean by comparison.[4]

Pittsburgh in WorldwarEdit

When the Race landed in mid 1942, they ran rampant across the United States, reaching as far as Pittsburgh. When Jens Larssen heard the city had fallen he wasn't surprised, but it was still like a kick to the guts anyway.

Decatur Commodore and guerrilla fighter Bobby Fiore was from Pittsburgh, where his cousin ran a bakery.
