13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Chicago Fire Department Memorial

The Chicago Fire Department Memorial was dedicated to Chicago's fallen firefighters. This side shows the names of the fallen 21 that were killed in the Chicago stockyards fire on 12/22/1910, and was the greatest single loss of firefighters until 911. My grandfather TM Edward D. Schonsett was one of the fallen 21.
