The Ursuline's were victimized here 15 centuries later. The attack on their Abby in Charlestown, Mass in 1834 by Protestant laborers who broke into the imposing brick structure and destroyed everything they could get their hands on, then piled all the combustible material they could find in the center of the rooms and set them alight. That attack against Catholic educators ushered in the "era of the common man" which gave rise to the "Know Nothings" and right-wing nutjobs like them have been with us ever since.
