New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-century Manhattan

No notes for slide. Her narrative and style of writing is commendable — having to sift through, quote from, and reinterpret the Ye Olde cruddy English syntax of the day. This reconstruction evidenced just how small and provincial New York was at that time. Other than a fairly diverse populace and fledgling port this was something like the 37th largest town in Arkansas today.

As the fires were still smoldering, the leaders called forth the emergency action of inspecting every individual house and place of business to round up any potential strangers or non-residents that needed accounting for…to no avail. One thing I found a bit problematic was the sub-theme about political parties. Early on she broaches the subject by mentioning the emergence of the Country Party as a potential rival to the established political leadership of the Court Party — perhaps the first such threat in the Colonies.

Much later she exhumes the speculation by considering the purported plotting of slaves might be seen — or was by Horsemanden — as the equivalent of another rival party in addition to, I suppose, a force hell-bent on total extirpation of white New Yorkers in general. Perhaps this is a great insight?

I can certainly buy it. Overall I would rate this as a sophisticated construct resulting from important research that is not going to hold the interest of most.
