Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- February 17, 1900A Magnanimous Offer
Alderman C. F. Gunther announced his intention to donate to the City of Chicago his entire collection of civil war relics. This collection with other curiosities form an exhibit which is the only one of its kind in the United States.
But this exquisite gift has to be housed in a building yet to be erected. The stipulation was that a museum at the cost of about $100,000 should be built in Garfield Park. The Libby Prison exhibition, is also included in his collection.
