The Lady Elgin was a side-wheel steamship full of many Irish Democrats from the Third Ward of Milwaukee. It was returning to Milwaukee from Chicago when it sunk in the early hours of September 8th, 1860. Of the 398 people on board, only 96 survived. Paul Timm, an expert on the Lady Elgin wreck, will unfold this tragedy for us and delve into the histories of many of the passengers. Please join us for the informative program.
