Flesh and Blood So Cheap by Albert Marrin
On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burst into flames. The factory was crowded. The doors were locked to ensure workers stay inside. One hundred forty-six people—mostly women—perished; it was one of the most lethal workplace fires in American history until September 11, 2001.
Marrin tells the harrowing account of the tragic fire. Entwined is the story of immigration in early 20th-century America and of the hard work to make it in a new country.
