Our Town's Long History of Disasters and Tragedies


For a city that's only been around since 1837, Chicago has seemingly dominated the nation's psyche when it comes to tragedies - natural and human-made. Where was one of the biggest maritime disasters in American History? What City is almost synomynous with "Fire?" What City contained the most notorious Civil War POW Camps for both the North and South? The answer to all these questions is - all together now - Chicago. And then there's the whole bit about Mrs. O'Leary's cow, Daisy. Let's learn about it all.

Available as an all-day tour.
