Bath

On May 18, 1927, Andrew Kehoe, an embittered member of the Bath Consolidated School Board detonated hundreds of pounds of dynamite in the school.

38 children and 6 adults were killed as a result of the blast, and the so-called Bath School Disaster remains the worst school massacre in American history.

Harold Schechter is a true crime writer who wrote “Maniac: The Bath School Disaster and the Birth of the Modern Mass Killer.”
