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?

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Dead: Death on the Railroad DVD:

Death on the Railroad makes a significant contribution to railroad history. All those involved should be applauded for their efforts. The producers did a great job telling the story and getting it right for those unfortunate track laborers who died so long ago.

A great detective story

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Dead: Death on the Railroad DVD:

This was a really interesting show. Unlike so many other shows on TV where nothing gets found and the viewer is let down, these gentlemen actually found what they were looking for in this show, after 180 years. Anyone into Irish history and genealogy should watch this.

Amazing Episode

By Irish Ironman

from New Jersey

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Dead: Death on the Railroad DVD:

This is a very well researched and filmed episode. Every Irish-American knows that things like this (Duffy's Cut) happened, despite on-going negation by some folks. Thanks to the researchers for their tireless efforts to bring this story to light.
