[October 8-10 marks the 150th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. So this week I’ll AmericanStudy that tragedy and four other historic fires, leading up to a somber special post on our current crops of horrific wildfires.]
Decided to focus my new Saturday Evening Post Considering History column on the Great Chicago Fire, so I'll share that link here.
And hope that you'll check it out (and feel free to share your thoughts on it there or here)!
Special post this weekend,
PS. What do you think? Fires or other historic disasters you’d analyze?
