BOILER EXPLOSION  




Railroad work was extremely dangerous. Nationally, between 1890 and 1917, a staggering 72,000 employees were killed and over two million injured on railroad tracks; an additional 158,000 were killed in repair shops and roundhouses. The total casualities from this period are more than the combined casualties from every war ever fought by the United States. Steam boilers were a particular hazard. Since the beginning of the steam era, there had been literally thousands of explosions, some with horrific loss of life. Back in 1865, the steamboat Sultana exploded with the loss of 1,238 lives, most of them Union POWs just released from Southern prisons. In 1905, the naval gunboat Bennington exploded, killing 62 sailors, and an explosion at the Brockton Shoe Factory in Massachusetts killed 58 and leveled the factory. Explosions of railroad steam boilers took place on a regular basis.
