May 4, 1970 Four students killed by the National Guard at Kent State

It started as a student demonstration against the Vietnam War.   It ended with the deaths of four students – at least one of whom wasn’t involved in the protest and was just walking to class. 

The New York Times covered it this way.  Two professors from Kent State are still trying to identify misinformation and get an accurate history of this event to the public.
