"SCHOOL HOUSE -- This photo of the Peshtigo House of Learning was taken in 1870 -- just one year before the school and all the other occupied buildings in Peshtigo burned in the Great Fire."
It was amazing to see this picture. And sad. And chilling. I sit here and wonder how many of these people survived the fire. No names with the photo. I can only imagine that if there were names they would have appeared with the photo.
