Standing at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch on the St. Louis riverfront is one of the most remarkable national monuments in the United States. While a number of unions received recognition for their work in building the Arch on site, it was several hundred Boilermakers in a small Pennsylvania town that actually crafted the Arch sections and loaded them onto rail cars for the trip to their final destination.
