Photograph of the parade committee. There are five people walking in a line with sashes across their shoulders, stating their roles on the committee. There is an Archbishop in the center of the line and then another on the far right side of the picture. In 1821, Greeks vigorously rose up against the oppressive Ottoman Empire which had occupied Greece for nearly four hundred years, embarking on the ultimately successful war of independence. An annual parade in the streets of Chicago commemorates this major time of celebration for the people of Greece.
