April in America: A history of violence

Thursday marks the anniversaries of both the Waco Branch Davidian siege and the Oklahoma City bombing, just two of the tragic events that scar April in American history.

Look back at Boston Marathon bombing

The 2018 Boston Marathon kicks off Monday morning. Five years ago a bomb went that killed three people and injured more than 200. Here's a look back at April 15, 2013.

On this day: April 15

President Abraham Lincoln dies, the "unsinkable" Titanic sinks, Jackie Robinson breaks baseball's color barrier, George C. Scott rebuffs the Academy Awards, and bombs explode at the Boston Marathon, all on this day.
