Student’s Name Student ID Professor’s Name Date of Submission The Gangs of New York 2002-Film The movie is historically accurate to some extent. Various things have been described in this movie that took place in the history of America. The gangs mentioned in the movie like the Dead Rabbits and the Bowery Boys, the Slaughter houses, the Plug Uglies as well as the Short Tails existed in the Five Points neighborhood in Manhattan during the 1850s to 1860s. History agrees with this movie in that according to the movie is that many of the five pointers group had no formal employment, and therefore they relied on informal jobs such as shoe making, cigar making, and dealers of liquor. Some of them were laborers, tailors, grocers or even masons. Most of these five pointers were trying to earn and save money so that they could improve their living conditions and therefore be in a position to bring their families over from Europe. Additionally, there are many instances in the movie where stereotypes are portrayed in the movie. According to history is that these stereotypes existed. The natives like the William "Bill the Butcher" Cutting and his gang were not welcoming to the immigrants who include the Priest Vallon and his Dead Rabbits gang (Asbury 13). History suggests that immigrants regardless of their race were not welcomed in America and therefore they faced discrimination, rejection, cruelty and other forms of violence that were meant to show them that they were not supposed to migrate to the United States. Racism was a common phenomenon that was real during these times as natives did not like the idea of having immigrants
