Thread: Damrell Fire

Saw a documentary last night about the Boston 1872 fire and Damrell's leadership during the blaze when I was over at the inlaws...
It was really well done, and went into his leadership and tactics during the fire as well as the social/political "help" he received. It also drew a lot of comparisons back to the Chicago fire a year earlier. It was also interesting to see how very few of the lessons learned in Boston were adopted 30 years later in San Fransico (dynamite for example).
Either way, it was a great show. I'm hoping to record it tonight to watch later
