Black Tom Explosion

Tugster links to the story of WW1 German sabotage, of which I was unaware.

Damage to Lady Liberty's arm and skirt?

People have not been allowed into her arm ever since?

Very much worth a read.

Check Tugster often, it is a great site.

I was told that my father's uncle was visiting from Halifax when he learned of the explosion.

It was indicated he lost family and all.

Hmmmm...I need to look up more on Black Tom, and will...some of it does not seem to dovetail with my previous understanding (of FBI origins and the Statue of Liberty etc.)...will enjoy looking.
