Event Details

Sunday, September 25, 2011

New York draft riotsThe Draft Riots of 1863 are one of the saddest chapters in New York City history. Many of the participants—both famous and unknown—are buried in Green-Wood. Join Green-Wood Historic Fund tour guide Ruth Edebohls to visit and hear the histories of Horace Greeley, Henry J. Raymond, Boss Tweed, the Brooks Brothers, abolitionist Abigail Hopper Gibbons and others who rest here along with little-known victims of the riots. The film “Gangs of New York” included many of them as characters and also featured the era’s legendary gang leader William “Bill the Butcher” Poole. You’ll also enjoy the visual delights of Green-Wood, its trees and ponds and its sculpture and buildings by the leading artists and architects of their time. Walk may be hilly and strenuous—wear good walking shoes.

Walking tour: $10 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund / $15 for non-members. Reservations strongly recommended.

To purchase advance tickets, call 718-210-3080 or order online through Eventbrite.
