Course Description

The Eastland sank before it even left the Chicago River on July 24th, 1915, and killed 844 people, wiping out 22 entire families. It is one of the worst disasters in American history and the deadliest ever in Chicago. It has been called “America’s Forgotten Tragedy.” It was overshadowed by the Titanic disaster (1912) and the sinking of the Lusitania earlier in the same year. John Boda has researched the Eastland disaster in great detail and shares many interesting facts, stories, and pictures as he explores possible reasons why the Eastland capsized from the perspective of someone with a very personal connection.
