I am teaching Irish history at my AOH division in Long Beach, N.Y.  I read an incredible article from fellow WG member Mike McCormack, AOH national historian, on the draft riots that took place in NYC 150 years ago this week.

Those of you who use Wikipedia and realize that the British and Protestants have tainted the view of the riots, making them anti-Irish and anti-Catholic.  I urge you to write Wikipedia to have them amend the information there.

The simplistic view of the Irish being anti-black is criminal and wrong. Read the article and let's discuss this here.
