Default General Slocum

The PR piece on the Slocum is in error. It was not the greatest disaster. In less my Math is way off, the worst incident was the Sultana on April 27, 1865. Officialy the loss of live was 1,547 souls and probably more like 1,700. So where did the author of the Slocum book get his facts?
