History of the SS Eastland: A Tragic Legacy

The SS Eastland, a passenger steamship, holds a significant place in early 20th-century maritime history in the United States. Built in 1902 and operated by the St. Joseph-Chicago Steamship Company, it met a tragic fate on July 24, 1915, when it capsized while docked in Chicago. The disaster, caused by design flaws and overloading, led to the loss of 844 lives, making it one of America's deadliest maritime incidents.

The SS Eastland disaster sparked crucial reforms in maritime safety, paving the way for improved regulations, vessel designs, and emergency procedures. Today, it stands as a somber reminder of the importance of safety measures in the shipping industry and the profound impact it had on passenger ship travel history in the United States.
