Tell Me Their Names: The Victims of the Triangle Fire

Dear Readers,

Today marks the 110th Anniversary of one of the more significant fires in American History. Though other fires, both before and after, killed more people, the Triangle Fire, taking place during the Progressive Era, would spark serious changes in labor laws and workplace safety laws. If you watch a documentary or read a book about the fire, you might hear the names and stories of a a few of the victims, but what of the rest? Join me here as I read the names and ages of all 146 victims. May they rest in peace.

L.H.
