    Paragraph 1 of my Language Arts project on the Triangle Shirtwaist factory

    The Triangle Shirtwaist factory was a sweatshop in New York with very poor working conditions. They made cotton and linen women's blouses. Isaac Harris and Max Blanck owned it and 145 people as young as 14 worked there. Almost all of the workers were women. Workers came from all over the United States but the majority of them were from New York where the factory was located. Firemen think the fire that started on the 8th floor of the factory on March 25th, 1911 happened because a cigarette butt was tossed into a bin with many flammable objects. Dozens of employees survived the fire by going up Greene Street which was located near the factory.

    This is not all of the info I had on the factory but we were supposed to divide each paragraph up into 3 main points or questions. Here were the 3 I had.

    1: What is the Triangle Shirtwaist factory and what was made there?
    2: Who worked at the factory and where did they come from?
    3: How did the factory burn down and how many people survived?

    I actually didn't use Wikipedia. We are not allowed to use it for any sort of research project we do in school. They gave us a book to read and a couple of websites we could use for information. I got about half of my information from each.

    Well , I wanted to do my homework while playing poker at the same time and I don't have a printer and this needed to be printed so I just typed it in a thread and then copy pasted it and sent it to my email where i could print it at my parent's computer. I thought I might as well post it since I typed it in here.
