There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: This article denounces what the writer calls "mob law." In 1835, when this was written, there were 147 riots throughout the United States. The year before there had been two large anti-abolition riots in New York and Philadelphia. Many of the riots were anti-abolition in nature, but there were also others including anti-Catholic, and even a three-day riot in Baltimore concerning the Bank of Maryland. The writer cautions that the liberty which the country had fought so hard for was at peril and could fall to anarchy. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
