Wall Street bombing, September 16, 1920

Thirty-eight people and one horse were killed, while another hundred and forty-three were injured. The bombing was believed to be the work of the Italian Galleanist anarchists, attempting to strike back for the arrests of Sacco and Venzetti, alleged Italian anarchists who had indicted for robbery and murder two days prior to the bombing, although this was never proven conclusively. Other suspects included the IWW, the Union of Russian Workers, and, more vaguely, communists in general.
