America's Deadliest Train Wreck

Failure recently learned that the deadliest train wreck in U.S. history happened in Nashville, Tennessee, not far from the magazine's current home base. The accident (referred to as the Dutchman's Curve wreck) occurred on July 9, 1918, when a pair of Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis passenger trains collided head-on, resulting in the loss of at least 101 lives. At right is the historical marker that was erected in July 2008, not far from the crash site.
