Description - Johnstown, Pennsylvania by Randy Whittle

The history of the city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, is a testament to the strength of the people that call it home. Following World War II, the community struggled to rise above adversity in the economy and to establish civil rights for all. In the second volume of history for this stalwart Pennsylvania city, Randy Whittle shows how Johnstown pulled together, even after the devastation of a flood in 1936 that wrought massive damage throughout the community. Johnstown is a true American city, as strong as the steel that is forged in its famous mills. From Johnstown's enormous contribution in steel and coal to the war effort to its recovery after the monumental flood of 1977, Whittle's book shows how the people of Johnstown made it the modern city it is today.
