The first major religious pogrom in the US (not counting wars against Native Americans) may have been the "Bloody Monday" massacre in Louisville, KY, 6 August 1855.  Nativist Protestants attacked German and Irish Catholic immigrants.  Estimates on the number killed range from at least 22 to higher.  

One of many such pogrom-like incidents not commonly taught in school.
