To the Irish immigrant haunted by the potato famine and bigotry of the Know Nothing movement, Tammany Hall's support of the poor to enter the middle class, planting the seeds of the New Deal, was a godsend. Terry Golway, author of "Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics," gives us a revisionist view of Tammany Hall. A great read!
