Bombing at Centennial Olympic Park – Jul 27, 1996 –


Within a few days, Richard Jewell, a security guard at the concert, was charged with the crime. However, evidence against him was dubious at best, and in October he was fully cleared of all responsibility in the bombing.

People remember the bomb, the security guard implicated and later exonerated, but few remember this was a bombing spree. Eric Robert Rudolph was eventually arrested for his involvement in the bombings.
