In July 1863, several months after President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation and signed the nation's first federal draft law, New York City was nearly destroyed in a four-day cataclysm of arson, looting, and lynching. Join historian Barnet Schecter for an in-depth look at the festering racial and class conflicts that produced the deadliest riots in American history. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Lincoln and New York.

Barnet Schecter is the author of The Devil's Own Work: The Civil War Draft Riots and the Fight to Reconstruct America and George Washington's America: A Biography through His Maps.
