Do you believe in curses? You might after you read this story. The U.S.S. Akron was a Naval Airship based out of Lakehurst, New Jersey that seems to have been doomed from day one. One accident followed another, resulting in tragedy.
This series of tragedies is almost unbelievable, leading many to call the ship cursed. Its crash over the Jersey coast (near Barnegat Light) was the largest airship disaster in history, resulting in nearly double the deaths of the Hindenburg’s fire, which also occurred in New Jersey. President Roosevelt declared the event a national tragedy. Had you ever heard of the U.S.S. Akron? Do you believe the ship was cursed?
