The Halifax Explosion

This is the place to discuss the past, its study, and those who study it. Discussion about events that happened less than twenty years ago should go go in Politics instead.

Thanks.

I learned about this when I was on holiday in Quebec, the Maritimes, and New England. Halifax is a lovely city in a lovely location. I recommend as a holiday destination.
