REMEMBER THE MAINE!... REMEMBER THE TITANIC!... Now remember the GRIFFITH Off Cleveland, Ohio in 1850
In the early morning hours of June 17, 1850, the side-paddle wheel steamer G.P. Griffith, carrying over three hunderd English, Irish and German immigrants caught fire and ran aground in Lake Erie off Cleveland, Ohio. Only thirty men and one woman survived. The sinking is regarded as the third most tragic number of deaths in a Great Lakes shipping disaster. The Griffith is about who these people were, how they came to be aboard the Griffith and how she caught fire and sank.
