1855 witnessed what was called Bloody Monday in Louisville, Kentucky. The event, spurred by the Know-Nothing political party, was a series of mob violence against the Catholic immigrants in the city, mostly composed of Irish and Germans. By the end of the attacks, some twenty-two people had been killed. This 1855 half dime recalls an event that led to roughly ten thousand immigrants packing up and leaving Louisville.
