Interview with Herb Boyd

When did you get a sense that the rebellion was ending and what do you think caused it to stop?


I think the presence--I think what was the final thing in ending the rebellion there, I think it was the presence of the National Guard in full force along with a presence of police officers in the community. Once the curfew was established and this military and the police were all over the place, it pretty much put an end to things there. I mean the looting was all over by Wednesday I think of that week. Thursday it was pretty much cooled out, I think they began to move out on Thursday of that week although the curfew stayed in effect all the way till the first of august.
