John "Old Smoke" Morrissey.  The Tammany politico and gangster was one of the toughest bare knuckles brawlers of pre-Civil War NYC and founded the Saratoga Springs track.  Served in Congress and died a very wealthy man.  His crew murdered Bill Poole, though not on his orders.  He and Poole had a bitter blood feud based on Poole's nativist sentiments.
