Ship Ablaze: The Tragedy of the Steamboat “General Slocum”
Edward T. O’Donnell (au)
A dramatic narrative of NY’s saddest tragedy before 9/11. Over 1,300 Lower East Side residents boarded the “General Slocum” on June 15, 1904 for an excursion from Manhattan to Long Island Sound. But a fire erupted minutes into the trip, forcing hundreds of terrified passengers into the water -- 1,021 perished. This book examines why the death toll was so high, how the city responded, & why this event failed to achieve the infamy of the “Titanic’s” 1912 demise or the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Enhanced by moving photos, this book honors the victims of that forgotten day. “Masterfully captures both the horror of the event & the heroism of the men, women, & children who faced crumbling life jackets & inaccessible lifeboats as the inferno spread.”
