Product Name: Birth of the Bravest
Product Code: 22537
Description: "Birth of the Bravest" traces the history of New York firefighting from the earliest days of the city when it was part of the Durch settlement of New Amsterdam to the end of the nineteenth century when new innovations in firefighting technology began to make their appearance.  Along the way are many tales of heroism and bravery, including accounts of the disastrous fire of 1811, the great conflagration of 1835, the awful fire of 1845, and many other signature events in New York City's history. Documents the history of firefighting itself, the birth and evolution of fire companies (both volunteer and paid), legislated fire regulations, the development of new equipment to aid the bravest in their mission, and the birth of fire insurance.   Tracks individual exploits of great heroism, on the job and off, as many members went off to serve in the Civil War."  Hardcover
