In 2009 Steve Lehto published a book about the Italian Hall Disaster in Calumet, Michigan, Death's Door: The Truth Behind Michigan's Largest Mass Murder. This book wades through the conflicting views of what really happened leading up to, during, and after the Italian Hall disaster. The tragedy occurred on December 24, 1913, in Calumet, Michigan. Seventy-three men, women, and children, mostly striking copper mine workers and their families, were crushed to death in a stampede when someone falsely shouted "fire" at a crowded Christmas party.
