In Washington, D.C. nearly 100,000 people gather to protest the American war
effort in Vietnam. More than 50,000 of the protesters marched to the
Pentagon
to ask for an end to the conflict. The protest was the most dramatic sign of
waning U.S. support for President Lyndon Johnson’s war in Vietnam. Polls
taken in the summer of 1967 revealed that, for the first time, American
support for the war had fallen below 50 percent.

In New York City on this day in 1911, 146 women were killed in fire

of the company were indicted on manslaughter charges because
some of the employees had been behind locked doors in the
factory. The owners were later acquitted and in 1914 they were
ordered to pay damages to each of the twenty-three families that
had sued.
