The Sinking of the General Slocum

Today marks the tragic anniversary of the sinking of the General Slocum, which was ferrying over 1,000 German immigrants to a Sunday School picnic on Long Island when it went down in the East River on June 15, 1904.

We have blogged about the General Slocum in the past; you can read more about it at http://blog.insidetheapple.net/2009/06/general-slocum-disaster.html or, in more depth, in Inside the Apple.
