The March on the Pentagon (1967)

The March on the Pentagon was, at the time, the largest anti-war demonstration in American history. The New York Times put together a typically excellent oral history in remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the rally. The piece, which includes ample anecdotes from military and political representatives who stood in opposition to the protest, breaks the narrative into three parts: the organization and arrival, the march, and the aftermath. Representative images and video clips are also included. It’s truly an important artifact and a treat for anyone who loves oral history.
