What are the origins of Black Friday?

Per History, Black Friday was not actually used to describe post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping but for a financial crisis. In specific, the crash of the US gold market on September 24th 1869.

Two ruthless Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk worked together to buy as much gold as they possibly could hoping to drive the price upwards and sell it for massive profits. However, their conspiracy was revealed on that Friday in September which sent the stock market into free-fall and led to bankruptcy across the United States.

Therefore, retailers who had operated at a loss and were ‘in the red’ would supposedly earn a profit when stores ‘went in the black’ on the day after Thanksgiving because holiday shoppers spent obscene amounts of money on discounted goods.
