1865 · Sultana Tragedy

Age 1

In April of 1865, the steamboat the Sultana exploded. The Civil War had been over for awhile so this was considered the worst maritime disaster in US history. Compared to the Titanic where 1,512 people were killed, 1,8000 soldiers were killed on the Sultana. Confederate soldiers that weeks earlier had been fighting with Union soldiers were now fighting to save their lives.

Age 7

In 1871, a cow kicked over a lantern, causing a fire that burned down half of Chicago. Today this city is the third largest in the US.
1877 · The First Workers Strike

Age 13

The country was in great economic distress in mid-1877, which caused many workers of the Railroad to come together and began the first national strike in the United States. Crowds gathered in Chicago in extreme number to be a part of the strike which was later named the Great Railroad Strike. Shortly after the strike began, the battle was fought between the authorities and many of the strikers. The conflict escalated to violence and quickly each side turned bloody.
