Scapegoat
    ( -July 3, 1895)
    Mrs. O'Leary's cow was blamed for starting the Chicago Fire (October 8, 1871)
    The great fire of Chicago originated in her barn.
    The Chicago Fire Department never found the cause of the blaze.
    Michael Aherns wrote in the Chicago Evening Journal that Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over a gas lamp causing the great Chicago fire.
    Years later he admitted he made the story up.
    She and her cow were exonerated, 125 years later (1997).
