Mackinac Journal: “‘A Bitter Memory’ — The Burt Lake Burn-out of 1900”

An important read for anyone in northern Michigan:

A Bitter Memory’ — The Burt Lake Burn-out of 1900

Moreover, it is a fairly direct response to the recent Michigan Historical Review article (here) that essentially argues it was perfectly legal to resort to arson to enforce a foreclosure order. Imagine if that were really true — a bank or a sheriff could simply set alight a foreclosed home, with people inside, in order to enforce a foreclosure order. Obviously not.

Here is an imaged version of article as well, with pics:
