Whether the disasters came from the earth itself, from fire, air, or water, Chicago has paid its dues in blood, sweat, and tears. Discover events that led up to one of the greatest sea disasters in U.S. history. Learn about a tragic school blaze that changed fire codes across the country. Read about the Great Chicago Fire and the myths that surround it, and how, without it, the city may not have achieved new levels of greatness. Feel the terror and shock that gripped the city and the nation during an airline disaster that took the lives of over 200 people, just minutes after takeoff from O’Hare Airport. You will be amazed at the courage, senselessness, shock, and horror of Chicago’s disasters.
