Chicago Shall Rise Again!
One hundred thirty-eight years ago today Chicago suffered a great disaster. The Great Chicago fire began on October 8, 1871 and did not burn itself out for two days. Hundreds were killed. Thousands lost their homes, businesses and belongings. I am updating the Internet links with information on the Great fire and will also be adding books available online that give a graphic picture of those horrific days. Note: all of my Chicago History sites will be providing information on the fire. Watch for updates over the next few days.
