Took place in Philadelphia, PA, in 1844.

Catholics had protested the use of the Protestant King James Bible in the public schools.

In response, the Protestants attacked Catholic neighborhoods with cannons and pistols, and set many houses on fire.

Martial law ended up being declared to help stop the rioting, and in the end eighteen people were killed, and many more injured and a lot of damage done.
