6. THE ASTOR PLACE RIOT.http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=980DE4DF153EE43BBC4953DFB1668389669FDE
It was in Astor Place that there occurred a riot on the tenth of May,
1849, which is sometimes spoken of as the "Macready riot," the enmity of the
rioters being directed against the famous English actor of that name who was
appearing at the Opera House, whose site is now occupied by the Mercantile
Library. The trouble grew out of the rivalry of Forrest and Macready, and
the friends of the former aroused the passions of the multitude by making it
a dispute between American and Englishman. The Seventh Regiment fired upon
the mob, thirty-four of whom were killed and many wounded. The regiment
itself had one hundred and forty-one of its members hurt, some seriously.
