The Lunchtime Theater - The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 - "YOU ARE THERE"

THE DIGITAL RESEARCH LIBRARY OF ILLINOIS HISTORY JOURNAL™ PRESENTS
THE LUNCHTIME THEATER.

The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 - "YOU ARE THERE"


This film, narrated by Walter Cronkite, takes you through the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 as if it was a news broadcast from the beginning years of Television. A wonderful way to "experience" what it might have looked like through the TV camera and perhaps what it could have been like to live through the Great Chicago Fire.
