The Jackson Incident was a people bomb attack by a black rebel at a gathering in Jackson, Mississippi in the autumn of 1942. The rebel worked as a waiter at a club, and had access to a ladies' gathering. He strapped a bomb to himself and detonated it, killing himself and eleven others, and injuring several more.
President Jake Featherston ordered Director of Communications Saul Goldman to paint the event in the press as further proof of treason and harmful intent by the CSA's black population against the whites. The President then ordered his Attorney General, Ferdinand Koenig, to order Freedom Party members and civilian police to round up every black man, woman, and child in Jackson and ship them to Camp Determination and immediate extermination. As a result, between 25,000 and 30,000 people were murdered as the week wore on.
