Most Tragic Acts of Terrorism in History – Wall Street Bombing: USA

One of the worst terrorist incidents that occurred during the early stage of the 20th century was the Wall Street bombing. It was a terrorist incident that occurred at 12:01 p.m. on September 16, 1920, in the Financial District of New York City.

Thirty-eight were killed and 400 persons were injured by the blast. A horse-drawn wagon carrying 100 pounds or 45 kg of dynamite with 500 pounds or n230 kg of heavy slugs exploded in a timer-set detonation, sending the slugs tearing through the air.

The horse and wagon were vaporized. More than thirty people were killed immediately. The bomb claimed mostly messengers, stenographers, clerks and brokers as its victims. It caused over $2 million in property damage and wrecked most of the interior spaces of the Morgan building.
