Exhibit Title: Anti-Vietnam War actions, Madison WI, 1970
Location: United States
In 1970, the Vietnam War was at the forefront of the news in the U.S. There was a general student strike on May 1, in response to the news on April 30 that the U.S. had carpet-bombed Cambodia. Wisconsin's Veterans Against the War in Vietnam led a march to Wisconsin's State House, at the opposite end of State Street from the University. On May 4, at Ohio's Kent State University, protesting students were fired upon by the National Guard. Four students were killed, including two protesters and two students passing between classes. After Kent State, the campus erupted, and the police resorted to tear gas to disperse the crowds. These are photos of the march and the protests.
