A reading from America’s historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism.
The Michigan School House Massacre
In this episode, we’ll take a look at the most tragic school massacre in American history, this one perpetrated by the school district’s treasurer, upset over a recent rise in his property taxes to build a new school. So he decides to blow up his own house and take the school down, too, claiming over 45 lives, including his own. If not for a faulty wiring plan, it could have been worse. Much worse.
