Bath School Massacre
« on: February 01, 2008, 09:51:01 PM »
Before Columbine and Virginia Tech, there was a schoolyard massacre that would be the worst mass murder in US history until the Happyland Club Fire, Oklahoma City Bombing, and 9/11 terrorist attack. It occurred in Bath, Michigan on May 18, 1927. Andrew Kehoe, a farmer and school board member was having money woes. He was angry that he was being taxed. He was a ticking time bomb ready to exploded. He stocked up on dynamite and had 1,000 pounds by the morning of May 18, 1927. He first destroys his house and then goes to the school and detonates the bomb at Bath Consolidated School, which had 500 people. He detonates the dynamites and it can be heard miles away. Fortunately, not all the dynamite went off. Had it all exploded, the school would of been leveled and 500 people would of been killed. Kehoe in his truck drives away and sees the superintendent and gets his rifle and shoots the dynamite. The dynamite explodes, killing him. To this day, the town of Bath mourns the 45 people who died, including 37 children. The Bath School Masscare is the worst schoolyard massacre in US history and one of the deadliest in the world.
