May 04, 1970

On May 04, 1970, the Ohio National Guard fired at students on the campus at Kent State University. The score: 4 dead and 9 wounded. Republican Governor James Rhodes had ordered the Guard to Kent to quell the students' protests against the Vietnam War.

Today's blog is dedicated to the memory of Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William Schroeder. Yes, the Ohio National Guard shot women.

There were 28 Guardsmen who fired 61 shots, in 13 seconds, at the students.

I was a first grader in Kent at the time and I will never forget.
