Mapping the 1844 Philadelphia Riots

Rutgers University cartographer Michael Siegel has made a magnificent slideshow of maps to accompany my entry, “Nativist Riots of 1844,” in the Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia.

Many thanks to Mr. Siegel, to encyclopedia editor Howard Gillette, and all the Encyclopedia crew.
