PS – I like that on the History Museums’s website,
they have a
Chicago History Minute.

Click here for it.

So for example, today you see that
“On October 15, 1922, more than 2,000 gathered to see Bessie Coleman, an African-American woman and pilot, give an exhibition in Chicago.”

Have you seen the road sign near O’Hare? Bessie Coleman Drive. Now you know the rest of the story. (smile)

Update: And today I learned that “On October 16, 1891, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performed its first concert at the Auditorium Theatre.

I wonder how that sounded?
