Mr. Maraniss talked about his book They Marched Into Sunlight: War and Peace, Vietnam and America, October 1967, published by Simon & Schuster. The book tells the story of two events in October 1967. One event was a battle in Vietnam, which resulted in the deaths of approximately 70 American soldiers. The other event was an anti-war protest at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He was joined in the discussion by Mr. Welch and Mr. Soglin, two of the participants in the events the book describes. They responded to viewer telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail. Many photographs were shown as well as some video from one of Mr. Maraniss’s research trips to Wisconsin.
Clark Welch was the Delta Company Commander whose men were ambushed in Vietnam on October 17, 1967. Delta Company suffered many casualties and he himself was wounded. He returned to Vietnam with Mr. Maraniss last year.
Paul Soglin was a participant in the anti-Dow Chemical demonstrations at the University of Wisconsin in Madison on October 18, 1967. He later was a leader of the movement. He served as mayor of Madison, Wisconsin from 1973-1979 and 1989-1997. close
