January 10, 1883: The Milwaukee Fire

        'Twas the gray of early morning when the dreadful cry of "Fire!"
        Rang out upon the cold and piercing air.
        Just that little word alone was all it did require
        To send dismay and panic everywhere.

                "The Milwaukee Fire" collected by Sidney Robertson Cowell, California, 1937

At Forest Home Cemetery in Milwaukee, there is a monument surmounting what I recall as a mass grave of unidentifiable bodies. I'll have to check my notes on Forest Home Cemetery (first burial, I believe, 1841). I know I have a photograph in my collection.

Linn, the Thanatolithologist
