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 found this book so compelling that I had to start a family tree to see where I came from. No doubt,my Irish ancestors lived the life revealed in this book. The more I read, the more aware I became of our present lives and how much we have. How those immigrants suffered and still had the pride and stamina to go on. I am so thankful to have this life I live.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.
