An intimate look at Chicago’s genesis story during the five months between April and August of 1812.  Residents of the remote military, French & Indian trading post experience an Indian attack, Chicago's first recorded murder, and the massacre or Battle of Fort Dearborn (depending on how you tell it). The story centers on John Kinzie, the area’s leading fur and Indian trader, who is embroiled in intrigue in the middle ground between the British, Native American tribes, and the land-hungry Americans on the cusp of the War of 1812.
