By now, Pittsburghers of Irish descent (plus many who aren’t) are thinking of libations and liberties.
We’ve got plenty of those highlighted in this issue. We also want to highlight a few other events that define Pittsburgh’s month of March:
• Start with the city’s “official” birthday, March 18, 1816, when Pittsburgh was incorporated. Visit this cool webpage on Pittsburgh 1816 from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
• Then pause to remember Pittsburgh’s worst flood, March 17-18 in 1936. Learn more from the Heinz History Center here.
So, take a minute to celebrate the good, mark the history and March on.
