Editorial Reviews

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 due to a cholera pandemic as was widely believed? Or, were some of them murdered?

Top Customer Reviews

This program is generally very interesting - the effort and devotion involved in attempting to solve an 180+ year-old mystery is a commendable thing. However, the people involved in this project seem to have convinced themselves that one of the remains belongs to John Ruddy without conclusive proof. It is stated that DNA testing would be conducted; some source claim that it was, other indicate that it was not. According to 'IrishCentral' (March 1, 2013): "both time and money have not permitted for the tests to be conducted. Despite this, Dr. Janet Monge from the University of Pennsylvania, who worked hands-on with the research, said it's unlikely Ruddy could be anybody else." Regardless of how compelling the circumstantial evidence may be, there's always a chance that it could be someone else. But I guess knowing for sure is now no longer a possibility.

This is an entertaining and educational documentary that tells the tale of Irish railroad workers killed by cholera and a local militia outside Philadelphia in Malvern PA.
