The Triangle fire is sad and it should have never happen. – Ethan Cruz, St.Charles   13 Jan 2017

In the Triangle Fire in 1911 this had a really big impact on the U.S working conditions in jobs. It's sad to see to this day that people these day take advantage of people to give them very little money for such long hours, and for the owner to get filthy rich. If they were to once take a walk in their shoe they could really see how much bad they have done to these people. – B.O, St.Charles IL   13 Jan 2017

This is so sad. This fire has had an important role in history, but this event isn't well known. People should know about this and recognize this sad event. :( – Isabella J, Illinois   12 Jan 2017

Although it was tragic, it made the government more aware so they put in better safety regulations so there was a positive side to this – Lane H, Chicago, IL   12 Jan 2017

This was a very powerful story. This should be used to show students the bad side of industrialization and that 146 people had died, many of them by jumping off from the 9th story to their deaths and others burning in the fire. Just imagining the idea of having to work in the same conditions as those women in that building should show how greedy the business owners were. – Ahmad Y., Saint Charles, IL   12 Jan 2017

This is a very important event even though some may say they've never heard of it. – Lily Henson, Chicago IL   11 Jan 2017

This Is Very Interesting. I Never Realized What If A Fire Started In A Big Factory. 146 People Killed Outta The 500 Working There Isn't Good. I Also Feel Bad For There Working Conditions As Narrow Hallways And Exits Locker, I Can't See That Happening. I Feel Like This Event Had A Impact On The US Now That We Have Regulations Of How To Work Factories And Not To Lock Workers In. – Jonathan M, St. Charles   11 Jan 2017

This was so sad. – Taytum N, chicago IL   11 Jan 2017

Every time I sit down to one of my wonderful antique Singer sewing machines to make a beautiful garment, I say a prayer for the repose of the souls of the Triangle Fire victims and ask them to bless my work. When I first learned of this tragedy, it affected me so deeply that these poor girls sewed and died at the same machines that I sew on, practicing the same art that brings me so much joy, and that they were just like me. I am so grateful for their sacrifice and for the legacy of safer working conditions they have left us. May God rest their souls and bring their families peace. – Jacquelyn, California, U.S.   28 Oct 2016

Such a tragedy, but provides a good lesson for our current treatment of workers. We must remain watchful and protective of our nations working class.

Thank you – Robin Takala, Fort Bragg,California   29 Aug 2016

I am not sure what to think. This was tragic and preventable. It is part of the evolution of American Industry and Safety. I do not know what to think but I know that I feel the lump in my throat and the heaviness in my heart. I watched the PBS American Experience documentary and it also moved me deeply. The connection to all the names of people, where they came from and their families engages me and causes me to wonder. – Kevin Bergman, Cahokia Illinois   23 Aug 2016

It was a tragedy, and we all wish this would've never happened, but this was able to help pave the way for a safer, and cleaner industrial atmosphere that has forever changed manufacturing for the better. – Tanner Sapp, Columbia, MO   22 Aug 2016

such a sad story – Noah Graybeal, New York,NY   22 Aug 2016
