Tragedy in the East River: The Passenger Steamboat the General Slocum

October 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The General Slocum was a side-wheel passenger boat taking over 1,300 people, mainly from the Lower East Side, on a day’s outing to Oyster Bay on June 15, 1904.  Soon after departing from Lower Manhattan, tragedy struck the ship and over 1,000 people perished.  It was the greatest loss of life from a single event in New York’s history until 9/11. Archaeologist Eugene Beosch will discuss the horrible incident which is less well known than the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire or the sinking of the Titanic, other disasters occurring less than a decade later as well as ongoing archaeological/ historic research related to the event conducted along the Bronx shoreline.
