A bipartisan group of five U.S. senators appeared in a television broadcast to discuss and promote a resolution to end the Vietnam War by December 31, 1970. The broadcast aired 12 days after President Nixon announced operations in Cambodia, and eight days after the killing of four student protesters at Kent State University in Ohio. Senate Resolution 609, known as the McGovern-Hatfield Amendment, was defeated by a vote of 55-39 in September of that year. U.S. Senate historian emeritus Donald Ritchie was interviewed prior to the film for his perspective on that time in American history. close
