MCNY Hosts Panel on 150-Year Anniversary of Civil War Draft Riots in NY

The Museum of the City of New York will hold a special event, The Civil War Draft Riots at 150: Remembering and Depicting the Largest Civil Insurrection in the Nation’s History, on Monday, July 15, 2013.

The event, presented in conjunction with the City Museum’s Activist New York exhibition, is co-sponsored by the CUNY Graduate Center History Department, CUNY American Social History Project, CUNY Gotham Center for New York City History, Harlem Dowling-West Side Center for Children and Family Services, and The Children’s Village.

The New York Civil War Draft Riots of 1863 were the deadliest civil disturbances in American history. At least 120 people were killed during the violent insurrection that exposed deep racial and class divisions in the city. In recent years historians, filmmakers, and writers have portrayed the riots from a variety of perspectives.

On the 150th anniversary of the cataclysmic event that devastated the city, historian Craig Steven Wilder moderates a discussion about the visual and literary representations of the Draft Riots with celebrated documentary filmmaker Ric Burns, award-winning novelist Kevin Baker, and historian Joshua Brown of the American Social History Project.

When: Monday, July 15, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue, New York (btw. East 103rd and 104th Streets)

Who: Moderator and historian Craig Steven Wilder
Filmmaker Ric Burns

Historian Joshua Brown
