“only city in the continental US to be bombed in WWII!”

Located in the Oklahoma panhandle, Boise City is the only town in the United States that was bombed during World War II. Visit the Boise City Bomb Memorial to view a replica of one of the six bombs mistakenly dropped on the city during testing on July 6, 1943. The bomb was dropped by pilots in a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber when they mistakenly took lights around the town's square to be their target. Luckily, only practice bombs were used and the town square was deserted when the bomb was dropped just after midnight, though many buildings were damaged or destroyed. The Boise City Bomb Memorial is located just in front of the Red Chamber Caboose.

They seem to have removed the memorial. Don’t know if it was moved or taken out entirely
