What caused the Halifax explosion – the largest manmade blast prior to nuclear weapons?  Is there a connection between Halifax and the Titanic?  How did the explosion unite Boston and Halifax?  And why does Halifax send Boston a Christmas tree annually?  Join us for the answers in an explosive examination of the maritime disaster that destroyed Halifax, Nova Scotia.
