'I Just Didn't Want to Die': The 1914 Newfoundland Sealing Disaster

'I Just Didn't Want to Die': The 1914 Newfoundland Sealing Disaster

| 19 min

In March 1914, the Newfoundland set sail from Wesleyville, taking 132 men out sealing. Miles from shore, the ship got stuck in the ice so the men went over the side to walk to the sealing ground. When a terrible storm struck, they were stranded. It took rescuers 3 days to arrive; by then, 78 men were dead and another 9 missing. This tragic story is told through the words of men who were there and the haunting prints of David Blackwood.
