2021 marks the 150th Anniversary of The Great Chicago Fire -- it started in a barn and, two days of flaming hell later, nearly destroyed a city. In this presentation, storyteller William Pack weaves together technical details of the fire with vivid firsthand accounts from those who lived through the conflagration of 1871, bringing alive all the excitement and terror in a multi-media storytelling event that will not soon be forgotten.
