Before the Chicago Cubs: Baseball Comes to the Windy City

South Suburban College History Professor Bruce Allardice joins us at Harvard Diggins Library to take a look at the "National Pastime" during the 1850s and 1860s in Chicago. He focuses on how the game spread, who played it, how the Civil War affected the spread of the game - and how the Chicago Cubs were formed!
Free and open to the public. Registration is required. To sign up for a seat at this event, send an email to adultservices@harvard-diggins.org or call 815-943-4671.
