At the convergence of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Rivers lies Cereal City, USA. Named after a bloody battle between Native Americans and land surveyors, Battle Creek is most famously the home of the Kelloggs, a family of eccentric inventors and entrepreneurs who would go on to rule the world of breakfast foods. But before their worldwide fame came the sanitarium…and the questionable deaths…and the fires. After their downfall came the complicated legacy that would result in tragedy for decades to come. Author and podcaster Jenn Carpenter reveals how cereal, Battle Creek’s lifeblood, also served as the root cause of bloodshed in the city many times over.
