1917: Halifax Explosion, Largest Handmade Explosion Ever

In 1917, Halifax, like the rest of the world, was embroiled in the First World War. The city was a hub of activity, with troops coming in and out of the city and lots of commerce. That all changed the morning of December 6, 1917.

Approximately six minutes after 9:00 am, a dreadful miscommunication between two ships in the harbour resulted in an Explosion of cataclysmic proportions. 2,000 people were killed and 9,000 more were injured. The city was reduced to ruins and debris. Countless stories of bravery marked the event, which continue to be remembered in Halifax today when you visit the city.
