Net-draped white horses and a flower-laden carriage led a silent mourning procession on April 5, 1911 for the unidentified victims of the Triangle fire. Brought together by leaflets in English, Yiddish and Italian calling for workers to join the final tribute to the fire's victims, a parade of 100,000 mourners walking to the site of the tragedy took 6 hours to pass the 300,000 who stood respectfully in unending rain.
