Saddest Events In United States History

The Top Ten

1 9/11

Whoever makes jokes about this event are cruel bastards who want to become psychopaths.

A tragic event that happened for no reason and innocent people died when they shouldn't have

Why am I not surprised by this?

2 Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
3 Slave Trade

It ruined the lives of countless Africans, gave us gruesome stories about the cruelty of the slave-masters, started a war that killed hundreds of thousands of people, made racism a staple of American culture even after it officially ended.

By far the saddest series of events in American history. - ThePenguin227
