Prepare to be swept away as we discuss
The Johnstown Flood by David McCullough
at Pat Knock’s home: 13004 Orleans St. 22192.
At the end of the nineteenth century, Johnstown, Pennsylvania was a booming coal-and-steel town filled with hard working families striving for a piece of the nation’s burgeoning industrial prosperity. In the mountains above Johnstown, an old earth dam had been hastily rebuilt to create a lake for an exclusive summer resort. Then came May 31, 1889, when the dam burst, sending a wall of water thundering down the mountain, smashing through Johnstown, and killing more than 2000 people. It was a disaster that became a national scandal, and offers a powerful historical lesson: the danger of assuming that because people are in positions of responsibility that they are necessarily behaving responsibly.
