What our visitors are saying...

Excellent material on a tragic event during the Progressive Era, and use of many sources to use in creating lesson plans for high school U.S. History – Wade Maroney, Fargo, ND - 2018-05-27

A very useful site for introducing students to the working conditions and (lack of) safety regulations at the turn of the last century. Most of my students are immigrants themselves, and they really relate to the experiences of those who migrated to North America a century before them. – Keith Solomon, Saskatoon, SK, Canada - 2018-05-25

This is by far one of the most heart wrenching tragedies of workplace accidents I have ever heard of. This was so much more of an issue than just lack of precautions, the workers were treated maliciously at nearly all times. It certainly wasn't intentional, but the fact that Blanck and Harris locked all but one route of doors certainly escalated the situation to a severity it should never have reached. – Brandon Duncan, Central Valley of California - 2018-04-19

So sad to read and see the negate that the employees went through. Businesses should be accountable for a safe environment for their employees. – nww, Louisiana - 2018-04-06

Poignant, respectfully presented on this site. We must never forget. The tragedy was totally preventable.Doors had been locked. Most people were required to work until noon, these brutes required full day.There had been signage on elevatorsif you don't come in on Saturday, don't come in on Monday. Remember too, brave New Yorkers who tried to save them. One year later, April 1912, the Titanic Disaster, also man- made and completely avoidable. Thank unions for 40 hour week and for bringing safety to workers. We must never forget. – Carole , Takoma Park, MD - 2018-04-05
