The Deadliest Massacres in Modern US History

A massacre is defined as the act of brutally and indiscriminately slaughtering people. Sadly, every nation has gone through these tragedies. And the loss, no matter the number of people killed, is always a huge weight on the heart of the people. In the US, there have been so many of these tragic events, too many to count even.

Some of these shootings hit home because of the nature of the slaughter. Some of these killings involve innocent children, gay club goers, students, teachers and regular every day people who were just trying to live their lives.
