The Peace Moratorium (U.S.)

Protesting the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War, an estimated two million people marched outside of the White House in 1969. Believed to be the largest demonstration in U.S. history, Americans of all ages and backgrounds participated in school seminars, religious services, street rallies and more across the country.
