Area Affected

It is called the "Peshtigo Fire," but it wasn't just the village of Peshtigo that was affected. (See map.) The fire covered about 2,400 square miles, or 1.5 million acres in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. At the same time, forest fires also ravaged vast areas of Lower Michigan as well.

As information becomes available and time permits, I will create separate sections devoted to each of the communities that suffered losses in the great fire. If you have any data to contribute, feel free to contact me.
