Chicagoist on the Eastland disaster
96 years ago the SS Eastland capsized in the Chicago River at a dock half way between the present day locations of the Merchandise Mart and Marina City. 844 people had lost their lives on this very day back then. Chicagoist gives us the history lesson. Gives us what Schmidt would've otherwise done! :P
