Here’s a review of the questions:
- This 1884 tragedy left 56 people dead and over 300 wounded. Citizens of the Queen City, enraged over crime-ravaged streets and corrupt city leaders, marched on the city jail, and eventually battled with National Guard troops in what has gone on to be referred to as what?
- Tony Award-winning performer Faith Prince, opera superstar Kathleen Battle, and legendary jazz trumpeter Al Hirt all graduated from what Cincinnati-based educational establishment?
- What Northern Kentucky city was the third largest city in Kentucky in 1900, became known as “Sin City” in the 1940s and 1950s, and is now home to shark rays Scooter and Sweet Pea at its huge aquarium?
And here are the answers:
- The Cincinnati Courthouse Riot. Fires set by rioters eventually destroyed the courthouse. An election took place the following week and the people of Cincinnati voted to return to office candidates of the same political machine whose corrupt practices had triggered the riot in the first place.
- University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s world-renowned program has brought beautiful music to the masses since 1955.
- Newport, KY. Ironic, isn’t it, that this family-friendly destination was once lined with casinos, brothels, and night clubs? The clean-up began in the early 1960s, and today Newport’s aquarium is one of the most-visited in the country!
