87. Reader Says Massacre Backstory is Complex -

Mr. Dries, whether one calls the events of May 1866 riots, a massacre, or civil disturbances is not that relevant.
The occurrence was deplorable, but the current reporting on this marker is lacking. A major contributor to the violence was the conduct of the federal troops of occupation that abused, burgled, robbed, and murdered citizens while especially targeting the police. These abuses began during the war and continued up through Reconstruction. In February 1866, a police officer named O’Brien was beaten and robbed by soldiers. He died the next day. Later, officer William Mower was shot and killed by Federal soldiers. These abuses and many others are well documented in the press of that era including the Memphis Daily Post, a pro Union newspaper edited and published by two Union army officers. These officers were former professors at Oberlin College in Ohio. The Congressional investigation is quite thorough, but its conclusion is also an example of the anti-Irish bigotry often seen in mid-19th century America. The minority report, authored by Congressman G.S. Shanklin of Kentucky, gives additional insight into the ongoing tensions between the Federal soldiers and the Police. The Fort’s commanders allowed the soldiers to abuse the citizens for months leading up to the riots. Nothing can excuse nor mitigate the crimes of May 1, 2, and 3, 1866; however, if the Federal authorities had cooperated with the civilian authorities and enforced discipline over their troops in the preceding months, it might never have happened.
