This is oneof the most haunting of the many, many websites I've been to, serching for infrmation on the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. – Olivia, Minnesota   30 Jun 2006

I have been researching the American Labor movement for a number of years now. I am so happy to have found this site. I just read about the Cornell School of Labor in a book about the life of George Meaney. This is great! – Richard Edward Noble, Eastpoint, Florida   29 Jun 2006

This was a very touching site. You should always watch what is going on around you and be safe at whatever you do. I actually had never heard about this incident before but I'm glad I know about it now. – ctk, Ga   20 Jun 2006

I'm reading this site as part of my women's studies class. I had not heard of this story before, which is a little disturbing to me. Why have I not heard it, and how many others have never heard of it? This story must be taught in other courses. – dmcs, georgia, usa   20 Jun 2006

The Web site gives a nice truth of what could happen if everyone is not watched out for and a safe manner. There must be precautions to assure that no one is hurt if a terrible accident takes place. As much as possible precautions must be taken to assure safety. – Enoch Walls, Jasper, Florida and Valdosta, Georiga   18 Jun 2006

I just need some help with protective services work – Christina, Pennsylvania   17 May 2006

I just read a book about the Triangle Fire and I thought that it was stupid for people to let those men go. I mean 146 people died because they locked the doors. They didnt care about the people who worked for them before and after the fire. I think they should have at least had their buisness licence taken away. To many people died to just let them off like that. If i was one of the girls who survived then I would have deffently fought for them to get into a lot of trouoble or something. – Sandra, Iowa   16 May 2006

i love this site it helped me get an A+ on my report – ECW, colorado   15 May 2006

It is sites like this that should remind all of us that tragedy can harken if we let our guard down. As a Safety Inspetor for the New York State Department of Labor, we are contantly reminded with photos of the twisted fire escape that "we were born from fire" and it is our mission not to let a Triangle Factory fire ever occur again – peter j sarich, patchogue ny   13 May 2006

My god... so horrible. i came here cuz my favorite band wrote a song on it, and I remember seeing about the fire on tv, but... I had no idea. Some of them had the same name as me, and that 11 year old girl... thats two years younger than me. if i had been alive, I could have been one of those girls. It's so horrible. the names gave me a personal connection. Imagine being burned alive. Its so horrible, and the way some people umped out.. it's the sep. 11 of 1911. I can't believe it. – AM, PA   12 May 2006

Looking for a movie – Ray, Ga   9 May 2006

you guys helped me a lot – vanessa, washington   25 Apr 2006

My grandmother worked at the Triangle factory, and she lived in a large boarding home where a lot of the girls lived. She got a different job only a few weeks before the fire, and lost most of her friends. Many years later when my son was doing a report for US History, he brought me some information on the fire and said that he just felt like he should do his report on it. He knew nothing of the family connection. It made it much more personal for him. – D.Dexter, Grace, Idaho   19 Apr 2006

I have read the Dear America book and Ashes of Roses. This tragic story of pain and loss has really touched me. To think of the 146 that died just to feed and support their poor families brings me to tears. I'm glad this site was made in memory of them. Thanx. – Olga, Kansas   13 Apr 2006

I have been studying the Triangle Fire as an american history major since my sophomore year of college and your site has always been my starting point for great sources. Now in writing my senior thesis I have the oppurtunity to emmerse myself in the wonderful literature and documents that have been made available as more people learn about this tragedy. Thank you for the work you do to keep education on this topic such a priority. Events like the Triangle Fire and even the sinking of the General Slocum are glaring examples of the fact that it was on the packs of the "huddles masses" that America learned and grew and still does. – Leah S., St. George, UT   6 Apr 2006

Thank you for your extensive account of the Triangle Fire. This site was a great source for my history day project on the labor rights movement. – A Busek, Hawaii   5 Apr 2006
