The Peshtigo Fire Cemetery is a cemetery in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. The cemetery is the burial location of the charred remains of victims of the Peshtigo Fire, of October 8, 1871, the deadliest natural fire in the history of the United States. Identified victims were buried in traditional marked graves, and over 300 unidentified victims were buried in a mass grave. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The memorial at the cemetery was the first official state historical marker authorized by the State Historic Society of Wisconsin.[2] The cemetery is located adjacent to the Peshtigo Fire Museum, which is a memorial museum for the fire.

The Peshtigo Fire Special Event marks the 150th anniversary of the Great Peshtigo Fire. Your contact with our special event station entitles you to our certificate, downloadable HERE.

The Peshtigo Fire occurred around the town of Peshtigo in northeastern Wisconsin on October 8, 1871, the same day that the Great Chicago Fire began. Historically, the Peshtigo Fire has been somewhat overshadowed by the Great Chicago Fire, though the Peshtigo Fire covered a much greater area and had many more fatalities. The Peshtigo Fire burned 1,875 square miles and destroyed twelve communities, killing between 1,200 and 2,500 people. The fire is thought to have been caused by small fires used for land-clearing that blew out of control and created a firestorm.

Please sign up for your preferred time slot, don't forget to check the mode you want to operate. I tried to set the form up to allow multiple time slots, but it wouldn't let me do that, so you will need to fill out one form for each hour you want to operate - I know, it's a real pain.
