Now Available: A Digital Archive Devoted to the 1971 Attica Prison Riot

Now available: a digital archive devoted to the 1971 Attica Prison Riot. “Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Thomas Ruller, director of the State Archives, on Tuesday announced the unveiling of a new website hosting a digital collection of documents relating to the decades of successive investigations and litigation arising from the 1971 Attica prison uprising and its aftermath. Visitors to the site can search by type of document or by the name of hundreds of principle players in the crisis (“Rockefeller, Nelson A.”) and the litigation that followed.” You can get an overview of the Attica Prison Riot at History.com.
