While many of us are familiar with the 1866 massacre of Blacks in New Orleans and the 1874 so-called "Battle of Liberty Place," there was also violent racial conflict in the city during the weeks leading up to the Nov. 3, 1868 Presidential Election, which would see Grant become president.

Here is an article on thise violent period:
