Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam – November 15, 1969

On this day –  November 15, 1969, a quarter of a million protesters staged a peaceful demonstration in Washington, D.C. –  against the Vietnam War.

The Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam was a large demonstration against the United States involvement in the Vietnam War – it took place across the United States on October 15, 1969. The first nationwide Moratorium was followed a month later, on November 15, 1969, by a second massive Moratorium march on Washington DC –  which attracted over 500,000 demonstrators against the war, including many performers and activists on stage at a rally across from the White House.
