Jamaica, NY

This lecture is being held at St. John’s University, St. John’s Hall Room 309

Understanding the social and economic causes of the riots as well as the effects of the riots on subsequent New York history helps us appreciate that even in the North, support for the Union cause was not    unanimous but a bitterly contested issue.  The riots illustrate that the nation’s conflicts over race and labor were not on sectional grounds alone.  This lecture will also discuss the draft riots that took place in Jamaica, NY on July 14, 1863. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program.  Please reserve a seat for this FREE lecture by calling (718) 206-0545x13 or by emailing programs@kingmanor.org For more information, visit www.kingmanor.org
