Summary:
On a beautiful spring morning in June 1904, approximately 1,300 New Yorkers boarded the steamer General Slocum for a daylong excursion. But in 30 minutes, disaster struck and 1,021 perished. Drawing on firsthand accounts, including the last known interviews with the longest living Slocum survivors, Catherine Connelly and Adella Wotherspoon, we examine why the death toll was so high and why New York's deadliest tragedy prior to September 11, 2001, failed to achieve the infamy of Titanic's demise.
