Eastland Disaster? Never heard of it.
That's the usual response when I tell people that I have a new book coming out. Actually, first they just scrunch up their faces and look puzzled! So here are the facts:
When? July 24, 1915
Where? Chicago, Illinois
What happened? The SS Eastland capsized while still tied to a dock on the Chicago River, in 20 feet of water.
How many passengers aboard? 2,501
How many died? 844
Who were they? Mostly immigrant factory workers and their families. 90% were women and children.
Why? It's too complicated for a list, but...
Watch for my weekly blog and I'll tell you everything you need to know before you read:
The Forgotten Story of the SS Eastland Disaster.
