H/T On a cool Spring morning in May of 1927 the Treasurer of the Bath, Michigan Consolidated School District fire/dynamite bombed his home and farm & collapsed the North half of the school building (having intended to destroy all of it). Within the hour he had committed additional murders in the middle of the village by the suicidal detonation of shrapnel-shrouded explosives that he had packed into his vehicle. Over the following year a total of 46 people would be dead as a result of that day’s mayhem & many, many more would be counted among the injured & maimed. After 85 years this incident still ranks as the worst instance of school violence in U.S. history.
