During the 1970s, Americans were brought together after the death of the King of Rock and Roll and the release of the one of the greatest movies, Star Wars, but a historical disaster was yet to come. On March 28,1979, located on the Susquehanna River, in the state of Pennsylvania, one of the worst nuclear accidents occurred.
