8 days after the Union victory at Gettysburg and 7 days after the fall of Vicksburg, Mississippi.. The New York city laboring, immigrant class rioted over the Union draft that had just become effective.

This was spurred on by anti-Administration "Peace" Democrats (known as Copperheads) that opposed the war and the Adminstration specifically opposing the fact that the rich could "buy" their way out of military service by sending someone else or paying $300 to the Federal Government leaving the poor immigrants the brunt of the duty to free the slaves. They had no interest in getting killed so the blacks could take their jobs and income. It was just not their issue and they refused to go and rioted.

Many African-Americans were beaten and left for dead while others were hanged from lampposts. In all 120 people were killed and the Colored Orphan Asylum on 5th Avenue was burned.

The Copperheads opposition to the war was in that Lincoln had gone beyond his Constitutional Limitations in violating the writ of "Habeas Corpus" and limiting freedom of the press, of speech, of person, of mail, of travel, and of right to bear arms, and due process of law. hmmmmmm !!

I don't know about that and in all my studies, I have never read such a report or that Lincoln had ever even met Harriet Beecher Stowe. Probably just a legend or myth and if it were true, I would have surely read about it in more than one place.

But I was just reading where her husband had traveled to Gettysburg to check on their son and was robbed by pick-pockets but went on to Baltimore where he fell ill and had to return home and she spent many days in anxiety over her husband as well as her son that had received a head wound.

Stowe supposedly went to Washington to verify the validity of the Emancipation Proclamation, but there is no substantial Historical evidence that it happened other than something her son wrote some 30 years later. Did she even meet with Lincoln? or was she invited to a tea with Mary Todd? Did her son embellish the story and it has been propigated by Internet enthusiasts? Legend or Fact? I can't say.

If the story had to pass the crazy Mary -- who knows. I have read several books about her. My favorite is how she roamed the streets with money and documents sewed up in her dress.

I have read those also, plus it is alleged that she held seances in the White House.

There were some crazy First Ladies!
JULIA DENT GRANT (FIRST LADY, 1869--1877)

Julia Dent Grant was cross-eyed her entire life. While that never stopped her from being a tomboy in her youth, or—remarkably—from developing into an accomplished equestrienne, it did lead to some embarrassing White House moments. At the galas she was fond of throwing, Julia had a habit of standing in the corner to avoid bumping into people. When she did manage to move, she did so in a noticeably sideways gait that some likened to the motion of a crab, often knocking into furniture.

I wonder if grant looked up one day and said "I've had enough of this!" and knocked her cross eyed for being so crabby?

Wonder why that came out like that in your post? It looks like symbols from an alien language.
