Twin Disasters: Great Chicago Fire and Peshtigo Fire (online)
Two horrific fires occurred on the same day in 1871 -- the Great Chicago Fire in Illinois and the Peshtigo Fire in Wisconsin. The Chicago Fire is better known despite the Peshtigo Fire being deadlier with far greater loss of life and land, Join us for an informative discussion between a Peshtigo Fire Museum historian and a curator from the Chicago History Museum on the 150th anniversary of the fires. The discussion will be moderated by the Western Springs Deputy Fire Chief. A Zoom meeting link will be emailed to participats after registration. To register and receive the Zoom link, click here.
