Event Description

In 1832, 57 young men from Ireland boarded a ship to America, leaving behind an impoverished country in hopes of a better life. They arrived healthy and ready to work. Eight weeks later all 57 men were dead. Did they all die from a Cholera pandemic sweeping the area or did something more sinister lead to their demise?
