The Massacre of Fort Dearborn at Chicago
A beautifully written and moving account of the 1812 Fort Dearborn massacre as related by the son of Chief Leopold Pokagon, Simon Pokagon, the “Redskin Bard”. This is a piece of local history told from a perspective we rarely get to read and is well worth a 10 minute reading break.
