The church was crowded with approximately 3.000 people to hear Booker T. Washington address the National Convention of Negro Baptists. Someone in the choir yelled "A fight!" Mistaking the word 'fight' for 'fire' the congregation rose en masse and started for the door. Through mere fright many persons fainted and as they fell to the floor were crushed to death.
