One of the most formative events in Troy’s history happened on May 10, 1862 when within  just a few hours a major bridge over the Hudson and more than 500 buildings in the city were destroyed by a huge conflagration known even today as  “The Great Fire”.  We will re-trace the progress of this fire using the letters and recollections of people who lived through this cataclysmic event.
