Short sleeve retro tee with Philadelphia's Bloody Sunday along with date and a Celtic cross spattered with blood stains in the background. The Philadelphia Nativist Riots took place in 1844; starting in May in the district of Kensington and leading to a Bloody Sunday on July 7th in the district of Southwark. The riots were a result of rising anti-Catholic sentiment at the growing Irish Catholic population. At least 15 people, both rioters and soldiers were killed that Sunday, and at least 50 people injured. Although the violence had stopped, state troops continued to arrive for days afterwards. Approximately 5,000 militia were used to stop the violence that day. Troops began to withdraw on July 10th and on July 11th the church took over responsibility from the district of Southwark of protecting themselves. As with the May riots, a grand jury blamed the Irish Catholics for the violence but supported the military's response for order.
