The Attica riot was the worst prison riot in U.S. history. A total of 43 people were killed, including the 39 killed in the raid as well as 4 others killed by prisoners early in the riot.

One of our presidents defied the Supreme Court, murdered people, and destroyed thousands of lives. This could only be one person in U.S. history, Andrew Jackson. He did many horrible things during his life, some were barbaric and were unprecedented for his time. He forced thousands of Native Americans from their homelands during the Trail of Tears.
