    1. I got bored in the first chapter of this book which really set the pace for the whole book I learned about the unions then I did about the actual fire and the immediate aftermath They gave a little information on a few of the victims mainly choosing ones part of the unions The pictures for the fire can be on google which should of made the authors try harder to make this book stand out.

    2. On March 25, 1911, 146 people were killed in the Triangle Factory fire in New York City when fire broke out on the 8th floor of the building in which the factory was located It quickly spread to the 9th and 10th floors also People jumped from windows or were burned to death because of inadequate safety and escape mechanisms.I remember learning of this tragedy as a young girl in history class, and my dad, a young boy at the time, told me how he read about it in the newspapers of the day I am so p [...]

    3. I wanted to know about the people who died there was little information on them This book promoted unions soooo much, which became stronger after this fire but it was not what I wanted to read about It also seemed as if the people writing it didn t talk to each other things were repeated or just didn t flow It was full of interesting pictures but wanted on the people who died.
