April 10, 1845 - The Worst Disaster In Pittsburgh History

The Pittsburgh Oddcast
Thursday, April 18th
The 10th of April, 1845 - a date that was supposed to live in infamy in the hearts and minds of all Pittsburghers. How soon did we forget? Within just a few hours, a third of the City would be engulfed in flames leaving thousands homeless and millions of dollars in damages. In this episode of the Pittsburgh Oddcast, we dive deep into a first-hand account of the devastation and the effects the 'great conflagration' would have upon the rebirth of Pittsburgh. #ThatsItFortPitt
