Editorial Review
One of the most popular writers of his day-and one most unjustly forgotten-J.T. Headley thrilled audiences with his tales of real-life history. This 1873 work is an enthralling collection of accounts of urban upheaval in one of the U.S.'s most historically vital cities: New York. Here, Headley offers us highly readable and informative reports on: • the negro riots of 1712-1741 • the Stamp Act riot of 1765 • the doctors' riot of 1788 • the abolition riots 1834-5 • the flour riot of 1837 • the draft riots of 1863 • and more. Anyone interested in the history of New York City will find this a fascinating read. American writer and journalist JOEL TYLER HEADLEY (1813-1897) was an editor at the *New York Tribune* and wrote extensively on historical matters. Among his many books are *Washington and His Generals* (1847), *Life of Cromwell* (1848), and the bestselling *Life of Washington* (1857).
