Went to Cantigny (The House of Col. McCormick who owned the Chicago Tribune in Wheaton, IL) Got up on the tanks to look around it was pretty neat to see something like this in the Chicago area especially. He has a Museum there with all these tanks and battle museum from 1776 to Desert Storm. One ironic thing when I took a tour of the house where he kept his guns the tour guide acted as if she is deathly afraid of the guns sitting in the cabinet. Also she said that he had a Mortar shell casing made into a flower vase. She said "Well we don't do those kinds of things anymore." Being around Chicago and Illinois with all the anti-gun sentiment is really weird. When One of the most influential men in Chicago's history was an avid gun nut.
