The city of Chicago has celebrated Casimir Pulaski Day on the first Monday of March since 1977, no doubt due to the large Polish population of the city; Pulaski Avenue, one of the city's major arteries, is named after him. The first official celebration of Pulaski Day was in 1978.
Casimir (Kazimierz) Pulaski was born on March 4, 1745 in Warka Winiary, Poland.
Pulaski came from a family of eight, one of three sons and five daughters of his lawyer-father, Count Jozef Pulaski and and Marianna Zielinska.
However, archeological studies of SavannahPulaski Monument together with the discovery of this bones on September 27, 1996 in a vault under the Monument threw new light on the circumstances surrounding his death.
