The untrained laborers were only marginally useful until Lieutenant Mapes sandwiched individual workers between the soldiers. 51 In the end, the combination of an on-the-ground presence of even rudimentary ﬁreﬁghters and a willingness to absorb costs until reimbursement gave the Forest Service control of the battle against the extraordinary ﬁres 28 Blazing Heritage of 1910, and ultimately over the culture, policy, structure, and organization of ﬁreﬁghting on public lands. Despite the acknowledgment that Forest Service efforts in the national parks and elsewhere amounted to little that brutal summer, only the Forest Service appeared ready to shoulder the enormous burden of ﬁreﬁghting in the West.
Among the troops sent to the park was Company K of the allAfrican-American Twenty-Fifth Infantry under command of Lieutenant W. S. Mapes. While other soldiers in the park found themselves with difﬁcult but manageable tasks, Company K found itself doing the most difﬁcult work. With two gangs of additional men, a thirty-seven-man crew of lumbermen hired by the park, and a thirty-ﬁve-man crew of Greek laborers offered by the Great Northern Railway, the army company had to battle the most powerful blaze in the park.
16 The National Park Service found that ﬁreﬁghting demanded cooperation with nearby national forests. The Forest Service had long promoted such cooperation, encouraging private timber protective associations in the northern Rockies and supporting other ways to assure a strong response to conﬂagrations. Other federal representatives, especially the area’s grizzled foresters, contributed resources and expertise every time a major ﬁre started. This powerful presence helped to negate the sometimes halfhearted enthusiasm of local residents.
