Outstanding work, Tim. I had heard about this fire but knew little about it. Thanks for all the hard work you did to produce this very readable and exciting piece.

Charlie Crystle

what an amazing amount of research you must have done for this!

Sorry--prior comment was for Princeton Battlefield post. I also appreciate this post on the Taconic fire, Tim. It was not something with which I was familiar, but I'm sure the more local of your readers will recall some elements about it. Living in southern NJ, I can recall the more recent fires we've had in the Jersey Pine Barrens and the fear they could inspire. And of course, many will recall the fires of California. While fire remains a frightening event today, even with more advanced fire-fighting equipment and techniques, accounts such as this remind us of how truly devastating and impactful they were in the past. Thank you.

Thanks for bringing this project to the attention of your readers. Analyses of battlefields with the use of new technologies and techniques have added greatly to our understanding--and reconsideration--of history.
