This Day in Illinois History is a day-by-day survey of the people and events that shaped the state. The browsable format encourages readers to flip to any day to find fun facts and anecdotes: October 14, 1906 -- The White Sox defeated the Cubs in the sixth and deciding game of the World Series. It was the first and only all-Chicago World Series, and the Chicago White Sox shocked the baseball world, and their cross-town rivals, with a game-six upset. November 2, 1948 -- The Chicago Daily Tribune published the most famous error in newspaper headline history, "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN." Staffers were sent out early that morning to gather up the recalled edition of the newspaper, but it was too late, and the embarrassing headline became a part of Illinois history. May 17, 1673 -- Marquette and Jolliet launched the earliest recorded voyage of Europeans into Illinois. With just the right mix of sports, trivia, quirky anecdotes, and great historical events, This Day in Illinois History is a fun way to learn about this fascinating state.
