America's worst school violence ever
was not a recent event
, but the Bath School disaster
of 1927. Andrew Kehoe
, a school board member upset with his tax bill, used dynamite and some pyrotol
from WWI-era military surplus to blow himself up along with the elementary school of Bath Township
, Michigan, leaving 45 dead and 58 injured. See a 1927 book
on the disaster, a list of victims
, the coroner's inquest
, a historical marker
, a memorial park
, an oral history from a witness
, and a 1920s KKK rant
denouncing Kehoe as an agent of the Roman Catholic conspiracy.
