-- Colfax massacre: On Easter Sunday of 1873, in the bloodiest racial attacks during Reconstruction, white Democrats slaughtered as many as 153 African-Americans at the Colfax, La., courthouse and later as other victims were being held prisoner.

They were qualifying their statements by saying ‘Modern History’......................
Also 120 dead (The attacks began on September 7 and culminated on September 11, 1857)
BS, Pickett’s charge was the largest mass shooting in US history.
Probably followed by Cold Harbor.
153 on Easter Sunday?? :(
I haven’t been seeing “modern history” in the articles posted to FR. And the radio hasn’t been using “modern history” today.
After the Pulse Massacre they were saying “largest ever” until 19th century shootings were discussed and they amended their remarks to “modern history”.
Since this eclipsed the Pulse tally, they’ve just gone to “largest ever”.
So many larger massacres throughout history. Guess if modern means last 50-100 years, maybe. And is this gun only or what about 9/11?
Damn history all to hell. We’re not supposed to remember things like that. That’s why the Progressives don’t want American history taught any more.
You changed the headline.
I never heard of this.
1854 IS modern history.
I guess the Dems are just plain stupid and thought the world began when Obama was born. :- )
I’m pointing out that the Democrats killed more people in the past and those they murdered were African Americans!
“To a liberal, history began at breakfast this morning.”.....Ann Coulter.................
I was not including anything connected to a war as well.
Dumbacrats do not WANT you to know they killed more people!
You would have to rule out shootings conducted by US military in order for this to be the largest. Let’s not forget Wounded Knee where over 150 were killed.
Mountain Meadows Massacre -- Mormons slaughter approximately 120 members of the Baker/Fancher wagon train
Bear River Massacre -- U.S. Army led by Mormon scouts slaughter approximately 450 Indians near Preston Idaho
Wounded Knee Massacre -- U.S. Army slaughters approximately 195 Sioux Indians at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation
“I guess the Dems are just plain stupid and thought the world began when Obama was born. :- )”
Indeed. Margaret Sanger was born in 1879.
Also.... Ask the Native Amercans. Many of the slaughters exceeded 58.
