The Hartford Circus Fire in 1944 is known by many across America as the worst fire disaster in the country's history. Resulting in the death of over 150 people, many of them children, and the injury of over 700 more, this disaster was entirely preventable, most likely caused by either human error or arson. Despite a plethora or theories and several intensive investigations, no one is really sure what caused the blaze even now.
Unbelievably, over 70 years later, there is one victim who remains unidentified, a little girl with blonde hair and blue eyes, who is known as Little Miss 1565. While she is not the only victim who was never identified, it is heartbreaking that for so many years a beautiful little girl could remain unclaimed after such a tragedy.
This is a long one, so strap in.
