This small, dramatic engraving, 4" x 6-1/4", Brussels. 1781, shows New York on fire on September 21, 1776, when a large part of the city was burned during the engagement between the forces of Washington and Howe. This imaginative view appeared in Michel Hillard D'Auberteuil's ESSAIS HISTORIQUES ET POLITIQUES SUR LES ANGLO- AMERICAINS (Brussels, 1781-82). OLDS, BITS & PIECES OF AMERICAN HISTORY 10. The Great Fire of New York was a devastating fire that burned through the night of September 20, 1776, and into the morning of September 21, on the West Side of what then constituted New York City at the southern end of the island of Manhattan.[3] It broke out in the early days of the military occupation of the city by British forces during the American Revolutionary War.
