** Arguably, [[spoiler: Amsterdam]]'s killing of [[spoiler: Bill]] could also be seen this way by the latter, since it comes after his MortalWoundReveal, and at a moment when it's certain that his vision of what America should be is irretrievably lost (see EndOfAnAge and HiddenDepths above).

* BlackVikings: Chinese people in 1863 New York. Specifically, although there definitely ''were'' some at that point in time, there weren't enough to have their own community.

It's 1846, and rival gangs are fighting over the Five Points district. Priest Vallon (Creator/LiamNeeson) leads the "Dead Rabbits", the gang of Irish-Catholic immigrants. Bill "The Butcher" Cutting (Creator/DanielDayLewis)leads the anti-immigrant "Natives". During a bloody battle, Bill kills Priest and declares the Dead Rabbits outlawed as Priest's young son Amsterdam watches.

* FightingIrish: '''''EVERYONE'''''.



* ViolentGlaswegian: Sub in an Irishman for a Scotsman and the trope is played totally straight.

* HollywoodHistory: The bulk of the movie's set from 1862-1863 and rolls a decade's worth of history into that time period. Naturally, there are some relatively minor anachronisms. The Old Brewery closed in 1852, a decade before the film's depiction; John Schermerhorn died in 1851 of natural causes, rather than being murdered in the Draft Riots; Bill's shown backing a Know-Nothing candidate for Sheriff when that party no longer existed in 1863. As mentioned elsewhere on this page, Bill is loosely based on William Poole, who died eight years prior to the movie's events.
