Description

From the assassination of President William McKinley on September 6, 1901, to the mass killing at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, the 20th century saw many murderous events that are difficult to contemplate but have become a part of the national history.

Part Three features crime events related to over 40 selected victims. Cross references guide the reader to additional information. An index is included.
