Title: New York Stock Exchange

Description: Crowds at New York Stock Exchange, September 24, 1869, at the height of the gold panic caused by James Fisk, Jr. (AKA: Big Jim, Diamond Jim, Jubilee Jim, 1835-1872), American stock broker and a colossal stock swindler, who gleaned millions in the late 1860s by flooding the market with bogus stock certificates; he and fellow swindler, Jay Gould (Jason Jay Gould, 1836-1892), American entrepreneur, attempted to corner to gold market with the collusion of members of the administration of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant on September 29, 1869, which resulted in a Wall Street collapse (Black Friday); Fisk was shot and killed on January 6, 1872 at New York's Grand Central Hotel by Edward S. "Ned Stokes (1841-1901), after a grand jury indicted Stokes for blackmailing Fisk, Stokes, with Fisk's estranged mistress, Josie Mansfield (Helen Josephine Mansfield Reade; AKA: Mary Lawler; 1849-1931), a New York showgirl, had threatened to expose Fisk's love letters to Mansfield unless he paid them off; Stokes, identified by Fisk in a dying declaration as his killer, was sent to prison for four to six years on a conviction of manslaughter."
