The Dying Declaration of Madge Oberholtzer

by Raegan Payne

In 1925 28-year-old Madge Oberholtzer started dating a charming and successful man, named D.C., who had his eye on becoming President. He seemed to match her independent spirit and hunger for an interesting life.Madge was well educated, witty, and daring. Only two years earlier she had driven all the way to California with her best friend when there were virtually no paved roads or service stations.On March 15th, 1925 D.C. called to ask if she could come see him urgently about her job. They had broken up shortly before, but her job was important so she went.What happened next changed history, and brought the largest and deadliest terrorist organization ever to exist in the US to its knees.
