Train derailment in Cassatt -- 1947
Several mishaps at railroad crossings or elsewhere in eastern Kershaw County occurred during my youth. The derailment at Cassatt occurred in 1947 while I was away from the community serving Uncle Sam in Italy. My information about it comes from my then-wife-to-be, relatives, friends and others and from news covered in the Camden Chronicle and The State.
