Description

Excerpt from Chicago in 1864: Annual Review of the Trade, Business and Growth of Chicago and the Northwest; Annual Statistics of Railroads, Banking and Insurance; The Grain, Provision and Lumber Trade An examination of the figures will reveal to our readers that, notwithstanding we are in the fourth year Of the Slaveholders' rebel lion, and in the midst of the greatest civil war ever known, the vast resources of the great North continue to be developed even more rapidly than ever before. Not only have our agriculturists, but aiso our manufacturers, merchants and mechanics, enjoyed during the year now about closed, an almost unexampled prosperity. In Spite of the prophecies made four years ago, that grass would grow in our streets, and that we would have bread riots, we are obliged to record the fact that never before in the history of our coun try, has there been such activity and success in all branches Of trade, manufactures and commerce.
