Triangle The Fire That Changed America Free download ☆ 100 Read & download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ù David von Drehle Summary Triangle The Fire That Changed America A fire broke out in the Triangle Shirtwaist factory in New York’s Greenwich Village Within minutes it spread to consume the building’s upper three stories Firemen who arrived at the scene were unable to rescue those trapped i Triangle tells the story of the devastating 1911 fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist factory in New York Von Drehle who writes for the Washington Post my favorite newspaper tells about the tragedy but also puts the fire in its historical context touching on issues ranging from the labor movement immigration anarchy Tammany Hall corrupt courts and how FDR got his start in politics It is well written and easy to follow Surprisingly at least to me who had heard this fire referenced before many times his book contains the very first attempt to write down the names of the 146 people who died or at least as well as is possible ninety years later Evidentally back then nobody cared to take such recordsI couldn t help however but to compare the book to Stewart O Nan s The Circus Fire which tells the story of the Hartford Circus fire in the mid 1940s The books aren t really that similar O Nan just tells the story of the fire without adding all the history and Von Drehle is really interested in using the fire to teach us a lesson about America at the turn of the last century Unfortunately for Von Drehle whose book is really uite good O Nan s book is awesome O Nan tale of the fire and the people who survived it or didn t is so compelling and the book is so moving that even though the authors were doing different things and even though I learned a lot from Von Drehle the underlying sentiment I was left with was that maybe I should re read The Circus FireSo I guess what I am saying is that Triangle is pretty good but if you are only going to read one non fiction book about a tragic fire that claimed the lives of many Americans I would recommend The Circus Fire insteadAnd you know maybe you aren t going to read ANY book like that Sounds damn depressing when I put it that way no
