A copy of an original newspaper article covering the sinking of the SS Danmark. On April 5, 1889, heavy winds and high seas caused the ship to begin sinking on its voyage from Copenhagen to New York with 665 passengers, most of whom were women who intended to go to the West to marry or seek work as domestics. The cargo ship, SS Missouri rescued everyone from the ship.
