5/17/1923, Sandy Hill, South Carolina:
29 adults, 48 children die at grade school play.

        Their brave daddies they were trying to their little ones to go
        But the brave old fellows perished, went with them up from the show
        Little children they were trampled in that mighty rolling flame
        Others on that night were screaming, death was dealing just the same
