'At the height of the Civil War, what begins with strong words and a few broken bottles will, over the course of five days, escalate into the worst urban conflagration in American history.  Hundreds of thousands of poor Irish immigrants smoulder with resentment against a war and a president that have cost them so many of their young men.  When word spreads through New York's immigrant wards that a military draft is about to be implemented - a draft from which any rich man's son with $300 can by an exemption - trouble begins to spill into the streets.'
