It's the third year of the Civil War and the North is about to impose its first military draft, sparking in New York City the most devastating and destructive riot in American history. Quinn brings to life a pivotal period in this country's history through a myriad of characters.

I could not put this book down. Quinn does a wonderful job. He portrays the struggle of African-Americans and the Irish in New York in 1863. He combines fictional characters with historical people.I felt like I knew these people.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
