REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS The Eastland Disaster (July 24, 1915) is Chicago's (and the Great Lakes') greatest loss of life tragedy. While 844 people died in a matter of minutes, tens of thousands more were affected by it. Most were 1st- and 2nd-generation immigrant laborers. The Eastland Disaster Historical Society exists to win a place in history for these every-day, ordinary people. As part of our long-term strategy, we would like to have a LEGO model of the S.S. Eastland designed such that we can sell the instructions and parts to those people and families who wish to build this ship in commemoration of what happened. Motion picture footage (60 seconds) from the tragedy. To learn about the tragedy and to see images of the ship. If you are interested and can assist us in designing a replica of the S.S. Eastland, please contact us. EastlandDisaster.org Email us now.
