Great website ! – DJ, Bk   14 Dec 2006

Your site is very interesting and well informed. My Great Grandmother and her sister both perished in the fire. As a child my Grandmother would tell us stories about losing her mom and sister and how her this tragedy changed their lives forever. Thank you once again for this great source of information. – Jim, Hopatcong, NJ   11 Dec 2006

the fact that in the summer of 1913 Max Blanck was arrested again for locking a door during working hours answers alot of questions. He knew exactly the status of the doors at the factory on March 25, 1911. Drehle's book pg. 265. – paul, cherry hill nj   10 Dec 2006

Earlier this year I visited the building in NYC, and was touched to see the commemorative plaque. May the victims rest in peace. Thank you for this site. – Doug, Chicago   9 Dec 2006

I'm doing a History Day project on Truiph and Tragedy, and am doing the Triangle Fire and I think it is a very sad story. I am glad the girls that died are still remembered today. – Alex S., Sacramento,CA   4 Dec 2006

tell how the fire started and don't seperate things so much, other than that it's very informative! – CN, Wisconsin   4 Dec 2006

I think the hardest thing to believe is that the owners were absolved of this tradgedy. Hopefully, they suffered through guilty conscience throughout out the rest of their life! – JMKelly, Westminster, MD   4 Dec 2006
