Thousands of people are in front of the Chicago Tribute, desperate to see the final voting for the fair. Eventually the results are posted. Chicago won the ballot! But now a hard and stressful journey starts for Burnham and Chicago
With a short time and huge expectations, Burnham and his men start to feel the stress as they fall behind construction plans. Meanwhile, Holmes installs his vault while his intentions seem hazy and dark.
Burnham's fair is success. With the help of Ferris and his magical new wheel, the fair tops Paris' Effiel Tower and puts Burnham as the top architect in America. Although all seems well, behind the scenes Holmes is luring and killing young women with the help of his charm and good looks.
As the fair ends allis well until the assassination of beloved mayor Harrison Carter. Instead of a joyful closing day, a large funeral is held. Along with this planned fires begin to burn the fair grounds. After investigation Holmes is caught. He is charged for insurance fraud and murder and sentenced to death.
Thanks to Burnham and the fair, Chicago is now a national and worldwide image that symbolizes hard work and wealth. Without a doubt the Columbian Exposition shaped America with its beauty that came with hard work and love for the city.
