Chicago Tragedies Bus Tour: The Windy City's Greatest Disasters
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and that goes double for cities. Some of the world's greatest cities have risen from tragedy and Chicago is no stranger to historic disaster. But each time, the city bounces back, better than ever and each tragedy becomes a part of the city's colorful history. The best-known tragedy, of course, was the Great Chicago Fire -- did Mrs. O'Leary's cow really start the whole thing? This fascinating tour also delves into things you might not be so familiar with, like the mass drownings of the Eastland Disaster, the Iriquois Theater fire, the Fort Dearborn Massacre and the infamous DMB "Incident," plus much more. Travel back in time on this three-and-a-half-hour bus tour as your knowledgeable and friendly guide shares the gripping backstories of these events and how they shaped the city, and in some cases, even the world.
