<DIV>On July 24, 1915, the SS <I>Eastland</I>, filled to capacity with 2,500 passengers and crew, capsized in the Chicago River while still moored to the pier. Happy picnic-goers headed for an employee outing across Lake Michigan suddenly found themselves in a struggle for their lives. Trapped belowdecks, crushed by the crowds attempting to escape the rising waters, or hurled into the river from the upper deck of the ship, roughly one-third of the passengers, mostly women and children, perished that day. <BR /> The <I>Eastland</I> disaster took more passenger lives than the <I>Titanic</I> and stands today as the greatest loss of life on the Great Lakes. <I>Capsized! </I>details the events leading up to the fateful day and provides a nail-biting, minute-by-minute account of the ship's capsizing. From the courage of the survivors to the despair of families who lost loved ones, author Patricia Sutton brings to light the stories of ordinary working people enduring the unthinkable.<BR /> <I> Capsized! </I>also raises critical-thinking questions for young readers: Why do we know so much about the <I>Titanic</I>'s sinking yet so little about the <I>Eastland</I> disaster? What causes a tragedy to be forgotten and left out of society's collective memory? And what lessons from this disaster might we be able to apply today?</DIV>
