Remembering the Pro-Vietnam War Movement
Fascinating collection of images from a pro-Vietnam War rally held on the Mall in 1970. It is easy to forget, looking back, that a majority of Americans supported the war. Now it seems obvious to me that Johnson should not have made his moves deepening US involvement in 1965, but it was not obvious to many at the time and he would have paid a large political price for cutting Vietnam loose.
