This Day in Newburyport History

On this day in 1912, it was reported in the Daily News that a hord of young people, (and some who were not quite so young) paraded the city last evening and did a large amount of mischief on Halloween. Cabbages and other missiles were thrown against doors and in several instances glass and panels were broken. Blinds were unhung, signs carried away, windows broken, doorbells rung and in some cases telephone wires were cut. Arrests were made.
