The deadliest fire in American history, the Great Peshtigo Fire

The History Guy remembers the victims of the great 1871 Peshtigo fire in Wisconsin, America's deadliest fire. Because it took place on the same day as the Great Chicago Fire, the Peshtigo Fire has been largely forgotten. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
