A fire swept through Chicago on October 8, 1871. For decades, the source of the fire has been debated and pondered, as people have wondered what spark began the great conflagration! The prime suspect, depicted here in weighty gold, is Mrs. O'Leary's cow. As the story goes, the cow kicked over a lantern set too close to her hoof, lighting the hay, and eventually the city, ablaze.
