After the Great Chicago Fire, Chicago received aid and donations from around the world. What was the name of the Wisconsin company that provided fresh water?
Answer: The Schlitz Brewing Company
The Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was once the largest producer of beer in the United States. The 1871 Great Fire of Chicago left the city in shambles, killing 300 people and destroying a 3.3-square mile area of the city.
Organizations from around the world donated resources to help Chicago rebuild, including the Chicago Relief and Aid Society. The Schlitz brewing company lent a helping hand by donating fresh water.
