The Illinois History and Lincoln Collections (IHLC) presents “‘I Shall Never Be Able to Forget What I Saw’: A Brief History of Illinois Disasters,” an exhibit featuring materials on six tragedies from Illinois’s past. Our state has seen tornados, fires, mining disasters, riots, epidemics and many other catastrophic happenings that have shaped its history. The items on display illustrate some of these events through firsthand accounts and contemporary photographs, offering insight into these catastrophes through the eyes of those who endured them.
