It took 3 days to build Pulaski’s cave. Take a look at some of the images from the shoot. “Pulaski led his men through the inferno, until, at last, he came to one of the old mining shafts along the creek. “In here,” he ordered, his hand on his sidearm, “everyone inside the tunnel.”   After an agonizing moment of indecision, forty-four men rushed into the opening and threw themselves on the ground.” – an excerpt from The Big Burn, airing on PBS this Fall.
