So-called sectarian disturbances have been a constant feature of Belfast's history, but probably the most concentrated outburst of violence occurred in the 1920s. Nearly 500 people lost their lives, thousands more were injured and considerable damage was inflicted upon the commercial center. Numerous incidents are recalled, as is the political setting of the time: the meetings of Michael Collins and Sir James Craig; the Belfast Boycott; the human tragedies that unfolded and the ultimate creation of a northern state.
