Book Title: History of Chicago, Volume III, THE RISE OF A MODERN CITY, 1871-1893

Author: Bessie Louis Pierce

Book Description:

This book was acquired in the late 1930s (I suspect) but it has been lost. It was recently reprinted because it remains unsurpassed. Since the history department has chosen US 19th century history as one of its key fields we ought to have one copy of this book. The third volume is most important because it describes the dramatic transformation of Chicago after the Civil War.
