In January 2006, with all of the excitement surrounding the upcoming “We Are Marshall” movie about the 1970 Marshall plane crash, we at The Herald-Dispatch decided to build a Web site and open our archives for the world to learn about the real story.
“The 1970 Marshall Plane Crash: The Real Story” offers historical stories, video and more. You can read about the rise of Marshall football and learn about the institution of Marshall University. You can also read stories about the Young Thundering Herd.
The story of Nov. 14, 1970, is one that will never be forgotten, especially in Huntington, W.Va.
