RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Thank you, Gene and Roger. I'm glad you like it. Pulling through 24 questions with no one guessing would have become very frustrating.

Well, I'll try my best. So, what do you guess is #13?

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Is this the Great Hinckley Fire from 1894 in Minnesota? I have read some theories that Boston Corbett may have died in that conflagration.

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Roger, fire is an excellent guess and keyword - but it is (was) neither in Minnesota nor in 1894.

Hint #1: It was very expensive, it cost 25,000$ which would equal 408,178$ today.

Hint #2: This was shot in 1938, but the actual event took place in 1864.

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Is it a depiction of when the White House stables caught on fire in 1864?

I think Dave is correct and will throw my hat in with the same guess.

Hint #3: An image of the character pulling the horse as welll as an image of one of the carriage passengers are used as avatars on this forum.

Kudos, Scott! Thanks for trying again! This is the burning of the Atlanta Depot from GWTW!
   
It was the first scene to be shot, filmed on 10 December 1938. If there was a major mistake during the filming, the entire film might have been scrapped. They actually burned many old sets that needed to be cleared from the studio backlot, including sets from The Garden of Allah (1936) and the "Great Wall" set from King Kong (1933). The fire cost over $25,000, and yielded 113 minutes of footage. It was so intense that Culver City residents jammed the telephones lines, thinking MGM was burning down. Scarlett was stunt doubled by Aline Goodwin and Lila Finn, while Rhett was doubled by veteran stuntmen Yakima Canutt and Jay Wilsey.

Please go here for this and other GWTW trivia:

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Happy 3rd Advent! Originally this was intended for Xmas Eve, but upon reconsideration I guess due to offline activities and festivities not much guessing will go on then...However, for this reason the window today is unusually large. Also this is rather a Presidents and First Ladies trivia question - but a very Xmas-y one:
Whose Xmas tree was this one?

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Another brilliant guess, but this photo was still taken earlier.

Hint #1: It was the first White House family to enjoy electric lights on their tree.
