1652 - the Acadian Fire burned down large portions of the city. it had been started by independence supporters in an attempt to remove the governor and his family from the city. In a twisted turn of events, the Governor's Mansion remained one of the few buildings untouched by the fire after the wind turned, spreading the flames to the poorer districts of the city. The men responsible were arrested and flogged, then hanged four days later. This event was spread across the islands' colonies through newspapers as a sign of nationalistic reprisal. Articles would detail the cruel execution of these men, but many papers would leave out the reason behind their executions. This would lead to further revolts and riots in cities such as Quniac City, Cundas City, Kingstown and Rome throughout the ensuing decade.
