Ride Chicago's commuter train to the unique house of a cigar maker and "blind pig" owner who lost family in the S.S. Eastland disaster, a shipwreck that killed 800 passengers before it ever left the Chicago River.

You'll also learn about Hawthorne Works, a factory complex of the Western Electric Company in Cicero, Illinois, and you'll see recently unearthed films depicting the Eastland tragedy.
