In the fall of 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill delivered his country’s most valuable military secret — a revolutionary radar component — to a Wall Street tycoon, Alfred Lee Loomis.

A compelling and complex story of one of the most convulsive and transformative eras in American history.

THE BOMBING OF WALL STREET

On September 16, 1920, a horse-drawn cart packed with dynamite exploded in front of Morgan Bank, leaving 38 dead and hundreds more seriously injured in the nation’s financial center. The Bombing of Wall Street tells the story of a mostly forgotten act of terror that remains unsolved today and sparked a bitter national debate about how far the government should go to protect the nation from acts of political violence.
