The right to peaceably assemble is one of the freedoms granted to Americans under the First Amendment. However, those peaceful protests sometimes erupt into violent riots. Both protests and riots have changed the course of American history, highlighting sources of unrest, inequality, and tension in the nation from its earliest days. Readers explore the fascinating history of these protests and riots, from the Whiskey Rebellion to the Women's March, through engaging main text featuring annotated historical and contemporary quotes. Details of these marches and demonstrations are made further memorable for readers through fact-filled sidebars, primary source images, maps, and a detailed timeline.
