'The Home of Uncle Sam', 'the Collar City', and the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution, Troy has a colorful and engaging history. Troy celebrates the city where 19-year-old Kate Mullaney, an Irish iImmigrant, organized 200 women for the first all-female labor union (Collar Laundry Union) more than a century ago. It is where Bessemer Steel was first poured in America, where the plates for the iron-clad ship the Monitor were manufactured. With more than 200 photographs, most of which come from the rich archives of the Rensselaer County historical society, Troy spans much of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries."
