Jim Jones and his terrible cult: one of the worst Tragedies in American history! 

Back in the ’70s, long before the Haven’s Gate and the Manson Family crimes, there was a “charismatic” preacher named Jim Jones who started the cult called the People’s Temple. And what a cult that was! It was the single largest deliberate loss of American lives that happened approximately 500 miles away from the closest American border, somewhere in Guyana, a remote jungle.
