Looking Back to 1941: Big Lightning Strike in Sycamore

From the July 6, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Downtown Sycamore gained a slight idea of how one of Hitler's bombs sounds Saturday evening shortly after 5:00 o'clock.  Lightning struck a tree in the southeast corner of the courtyard.  It is a question whether the bolt killed the tree or not."

The Battle of Britain was going on at the time.
