Michigan 1927 school killing was worst in nation's history - North Adams Transcript

Bath, Mich., a small town northeast of the state capital of Lansing. That day, 38 children and six adults died.

The farmer’s name was Andrew Kehoe, and he died, as well, when he blew up his own car.

In the 1920s hardware stores sold dynamite and other explosives to farmers to remove stumps from fields.
