Chicago Eastland Disaster

The Chicago Eastland Disaster is one of the City Hotspot locations found in The Loop and is a landmark within Chicago in Watch Dogs.


July 4th, 1915: The Western Electric Company chartered a steamer, the Eastland, to take their employees and families to a picnic in Michigan. Recent regulations had the steamer retrofitted with lifeboats. Unfortunately this extra weight made the Eastland top heavy. Not 20ft from shore and only fifteen minutes into the trip, the steamer rolled over and sank. 841 passengers and 4 crew members drowned.
