Thank you for all your research.My great aunt was Albina Deluca, one of the many young girls to have perished in that horrific fire. She was to be married in just a few days. I have her braclet that my grandmother said she was wearing on that day. She was identified by her stept sister, Annie Deluca. Thank you for keeping their memories alive in our hearts.

We had just started on the Industrial Revolution in history class, and our english class started reading the book Lyddie. Then, as a project, we were to visit a website on the teacher's list, and this was one of them. I was deeply moved by this senseless tragedy. Hopefully whoever did light that cigarette perished in the fire. Shows how much people knew back then. Thank goodness working conditions like that are kept to the minimum today. Thank you for this website. – Yinan Shentu, Boston, Mass   31 Jan 2004

This was such a useful source for my history day project- thank you. Everyone should be educated about something like this. Little facts and details such as the youngest person working in the sweatshop being around 14 years old (my age) can really affect a person. A website like this makes sure that something that's such a significant part of our history is never forgotten. – Tanya Bui, Burnsville, Minnesota   30 Jan 2004

Thankyou – Douglas Lackie, Buffalo NY   29 Jan 2004

The Triangle Factory Fire represents one of the greatest tragedies of the early 20th century. It depicted the horrors of the unsafe and sanitary working conditions that people had to endure in the sweatshops of this country. Those of us whoever worked in a factory owe a great debt of gratitude to these victims. From the deplorable loss of the 140 plus poor souls emerged major legislation aimed at resolving many of the horrible and dangerous working conditions of true unsung heroes of this country. – I. Holt, Whittier, CA   31 Dec 2003

I felt the sadness of this era, where the financial status of your birth determined possibly having to endure the portrayed hardships and way of life in these articles. We study history so we do not repeat such injustices. May these historical articles be available forever and not forgotten. – Amity G, Red Hook, NY   24 Nov 2003
