On the night of October 8, 1871, a fire broke out in Chicago, Illinois, burning up a chunk of the city and causing death and destruction. The fire lasted 3 days.
The tale is that Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked over a kerosene lamp, igniting the straw in her barn. True or false, nobody knows for sure. It makes a colorful myth anyway.
Note to our Readers: no Rhinos were hurt creating this post. Or Cows, for that matter.
Fine map of the fire. Can you show a link to the educational rhino post of days gone by? The sweater was outstandingly fine.
