. I read the book Ship Ablaze: The Tragedy of the Steamboat General Slocum by Edward O'Donnell after watching a feature about it on the History Channel. I always wanted to read more about it. Thanks Philip for the heads up.

I hope that you ....enjoy....it. More to come on this particular disaster. I found an great, untapped, archival cache that will soon be correlated.

Can't wait to read what you found out Jim. I for one liked your article on the General Slocum. In fact it got me to read Ship Ablaze all over again. 1904 here I come.

Hi. I'm doing a report on the Slocum. I read Ship Ablaze, but I'd like
more information. Specifically, I'm looking for about 3 things:
1) Downloadable files for the songs played by the band (or at least in
the band program)--the list is at
http://www.garemaritime.com/features/general-slocum/
2) The specific fine the Knickerbocker Steamboat Company had to pay
3) Other sources Ed O'Donnell used to write Ship Ablaze

If you can help out with any or all of those, I'd really appreciate
it. mgoldman717@gmail.com
