Leavenworth sets out to reclaim century of its photographic history

In 1968, a Chicago photographer bought 40,000 glass-plate negatives dating to Leavenworth’s early days

The county historical society has since acquired most of the plates and now is scanning them

But it needs to raise $1 million to buy, store and present 2,000 of the most prized images

Chicago officials released the police dash-cam video from the fatal October 2014 shooting of Laquan McDonald, 17, by Chicago police officer Jack Van Dyke. The veteran officer was charged with first-degree murder on November 24, 2015 and is being held without bond.
