Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry was originally constructed from hemp. Just learning that fact may be worth the price of admission to What Happened Here? Chicago, but there's a great deal more to enjoy in this deck -- such as the Potawatomie word for "meeting hall" (that information crops up in a discussion of Abe Lincoln's 1860 presidential nomination). And the essential Chicago insider knowledge that 43.4 miles' worth of frankfurters were devoured during the 1953 season at the Riverview amusement park. What Happened Here? Chicago also presents information of real historical significance, of course, about Padre Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet, for instance, probably the first Europeans to visit the Chicago area; about the mighty stockyards that inspired The Jungle; about the origin of Montgomery Ward's nation-changing mail order catalog; and about Enrico Fermi's world-changing experiment in atomic fission. Compiled by the Chicago History Museum, this is an intellectually satisfying deck as well as an entertaining one. Size: 3 1/4 x 4".
