Abstract:

My paper, “Racial Violence in New York State, 1860-63,” highlights several incidents of racial violence in the state of New York during the Civil War era. Although a Union state traditionally seen as anti-slavery, New York’s long existing racial tensions came to the surface when white workers and immigrants, resentful of African Americans and the war, carried out acts of violence against them. Most notable was the New York Draft Riot of 1863, when working-class whites, angered initially by the Union draft, violently rioted and targeted African Americans for several days, before Federal troops restored order. Simultaneous acts of racial violence occurred in other cities such as Buffalo, and Troy, New York. My paper will highlight instances of racial violence prior to 1863, the draft riots, and other sub-related issues such as slavery and early Jim Crow policy in New York.
