About this product
- DescriptionIn 1884, Cincinnati endured three days of bloody violence in one of the most destructive riots in American history. Natural disasters, corrupt courtrooms, and politicians jockeying for power drove the tragic and pivotal events. The 10,000-person strong riot left more than fifty dead, hundreds injured, and the courthouse burned to the ground. The riot ushered in the rise of the torious political boss George Cox, who ruled the city in a virtual dictatorship for the next thirty years. In this sweeping account of some of Cincinnati's bloodiest days, historian Steven J. Rolfes examines the political, social, and ecomic milieu of a city swept by tides of change.
