'Eggnog Riot' at West Point military academy.
When informed that their Christmas eggnog would be alcohol free, cadets in North Barracks No. 5 decided to make their own eggnog with alcohol, for a Christmas eve late night/early morning celebration.
Of course it got noisy and they were caught. Shouting and general disorder developed, some swords were drawn, firewood crashed through windows, and at least one shot was fired. The artillery unit stationed at West Point had to be called in to quell the disturbance.
In the aftermath, 6 cadets resigned, 19 were court marshaled, and many, including a young Jefferson Davis, were confined to quarters for more than a month.
