The Wall Street Bombing of 1920
Around noon on September 16, a horse-drawn wagon pulled up to the JP Morgan headquarters on Wall Street; in the back were 100 pounds of dynamite, plus 500 pounds of shrapnel. Thirty eight people were killed and 143 wounded in the ensuing blast. Investigators never conclusively solved the case, but it's likely it was carried out by more Galleanists, possibly upset over the arrests of Sacco and Vanzetti.
