The New York City Draft Riots of 1863 were a series of violent protests and riots that took place in the city of New York in response to the draft. The riots, which lasted for three days, resulted in the death of at least forty-five people and the destruction of property worth millions of dollars. The riots were a significant event in American society and politics in the Age of the Civil War, and they served as a reminder of the deep-seated tensions that existed between the northern and southern sections of the country.; 363 pages.
