Capsized! The Forgotten Story of the SS Eastland Eastland Disaster

Capsized! The Forgotten Story of the SS Eastland Disaster by Patricia Sutton is the true story of the worst disaster on the Great Lakes--a little-known sinking in 1915 that cost more lives than the Titanic. The ship capsized while moored on the Chicago River. It was full of poor working class immigrants and their families, many out for a Western Electric company sponsored picnic. There were many brave people on board but they could not save all the passengers, many of whom could not swim. (Non-Fiction)
