Near here stood the original Fort Dearborn, and still nearer occurred in 1812 the massacre by Indians of the brave inhabitants of the Fort. The picture shows, left to right, the officers' barracks, a corner of the blockhouse, the powder magazine, soldiers' barracks. The corners of the two other barracks appear on either side of the picture.", reads the description printed on the back.
