As a high school graduate it shocks me that I never learned of this tragedy until today, i was looking for information for my little cousin not knowing what in the world she was talking about. I do now, if it wasn't for this site I'll swear she was lying. Thanks for making a believer out of me. I learned something new today! – Shantella, Brooklyn, NY   14 Apr 2004

I continue to be appalled by the inhumane treatment received by those who came to American in the early decades of the 20th century looking for a better life. Many of us forget that our own ancestors were some of those who were treated like cattle. Your coverage of this particular incident is excellent. – JMT, West Virginia   30 Mar 2004

Thank you for having this website which chronicles the struggles and sacrifices of those who came before us. – J Graff, Sebastopol, CA   25 Mar 2004

I saw a movie about this tragedy years ago. Today I read in the newspaper that it was the anniversary of the tragedy. I wonder if today's manufacturers who are moving their factories to other countries in order to pay cheaper wages are going to repeat tragedies like this just to make more money. – Michelle, Indiana   25 Mar 2004

Sad to think another really bad fire occured on this same day!! the happyland disco fire! I forgot how many people died in this arson related crime – tom, queens ny   25 Mar 2004

On this day, March 25, 2004, the 93rd anniversary of the Triangle Fire, I am thinking of the innocent victims (those killed that day and those who suffered for years afterward). I pray that their sacrifice was not in vain. I teach history and as long as I do, the story of those who suffered that day will be told in my classes. – Jim, near Syracuse   25 Mar 2004

I never hear of this tragedy, but I found this to be very interesting as well as sad. I want to learn more about this now. – Mike R., Florida   25 Mar 2004

I am a student in the Occupational Safety and Health Tech program at the COMM. College of Baltimore County.. this event is a hallmark in the history of OSH in signals the begining of serious work place safety reform. In addition prior to this many states that had passed workmans comp laws had them struck down as unconstitutional based on the equal protection clause, this event and public outcry led N.Y to ammend the N.Y state constitution so effective workmans comp laws could be passsed. In addition it led the way for N.Y city to become the Priemer Frefighting organizations in the WORLD the words NYFD approved is as prestigious as UL approved or NAFA. – Burt Aftanski, Baltimore,Md   25 Mar 2004

Very informational site about a very tragic time in our history. – CAG, Illinois   25 Mar 2004

Very interesting and informative. – DRS, Buffalo, NY   25 Mar 2004

This peroid of time was very moving in American history and is often over looked in textbooks. We need more websites like this to see and learn where and how we truly became modern America. It is events like this that paved the way for all of the freedoms that we have today. May these silent heros and the many others never be forgotten. We owe them very much. – C. J. W., Richmond   25 Mar 2004

Outstanding informtion. Very well done and appreciated by all those who read and digest it. – CRR, Seattle   25 Mar 2004

Would like know more infomation. I had family that perish in Happyland fire, same day anniversary – AAA, Brooklyn   25 Mar 2004

In 1977 we didn't study women in history; I discovered the subject in the school library & read all I could. I've told my daughter about this horrendous fire before, but wasn,t thinking about it today at all. Why did today's date stick in my head? I new we didn't get the vote today in history... then I saw this site & I remembered. Thank you so much for creating this link! I will share it with my daughter AND all my friends. – Mary Caro, Huntsville,AL   25 Mar 2004

I have read Leon Stein's book The Triangle Fire, and mst recently, Triangle. This history is part of my family's history, as many lived in NYC, and worked in the garment industry. – Ruth Sugerman, West Chester, OH   21 Mar 2004

I've already posted, but I keep checking back to see if it would all go away-- as if it never happened... – Minerva Pinto, Los Angeles, CA   17 Mar 2004

It's sad to think that it took this tragedy to enact government-imposed factory fire safely rules. Without government's intervention, I wonder how many companies today would revert to exploiting their workforce on the grounds that "there's no law against it." – James Coppock, Rosemount, MN   17 Mar 2004

I was in my U.S History class doing a paper that I had just got when she gave us a paper that had to do with the Triangle Factory Fire. This showed me how the people had a horble death.
