The Great Chicago Fire
On a Sunday evening, October 8, 1871, a fire started in a barn in Chicago. Before the fire died out in the early morning of Tuesday, October 10, it had cut a swath through Chicago approximately three and one-third square miles in size. Nearly 100,000 people were left homeless, and 300 people lost their lives. What happened? Find the answer in this brightly colored graphic novel.
Includes additional facts, glossary, appropriate Internet sites, recommended books and bibliography. Trade paperback, 32 p.
