More History By The (Even) Numbers

Attempted democracy, 50 yrs. ago today.
Thousands attend a rally on the grounds of the Washington Monument in Washington on April 17, 1965,
to hear Ernest Gruening, a Democratic senator from Alaska, and other speakers discuss U.S. policy in Vietnam.
The rally followed picketing of the White House by students demanding an end to Vietnam fighting.
