Very educational and interesting information regarding the history of Chicago. Really enjoyed watching this DVD and learning about the hidden past.

This documentary is a knock-off of Ric Burns style. There is virtually no linkage between the parts that are divided by video shots of flowers and insects??? I was very dissappointed and wold not recommend this DVD to anyone. Save your money and buy the PBS documentary about Chicago...a much better buy and superb quality.
