This is a documented, non-fiction account of the worst steamboat disaster to occur on the Hudson River. Speculation arose at the time that a race between the Henry Clay and the steamboat Armenia was the true cause of the disaster. Others denied the accusations. Death Passage on the Hudson: The Wreck of the Henry Clay, in a two-part, single volume, is the story of this 1852 tragedy. In the first part, the author brings to life the personal stories of several victims and survivors set within the tragic circumstances of disaster. Some passengers of prestigious stature became victims while others, normally ordinary people, became heroes. In the second part, employing witness testimony and legal documents, the author details the public’s search for truth at the official inquest and the legal wrangling in the courts.
