Investigative journalist Lawrence Roberts talked about his book, Mayday 1971: A White House at War, a Revolt in the Streets, and the Untold History of America’s Biggest Mass Arrest. During the “Spring Offensive” of 1971, tens of thousands of anti-Vietnam War protesters, including Vietnam War veterans, came to Washington, D.C., in an effort to shut down the federal government. The protests, and the Nixon administration’s reaction to them, led to the arrest of over 12,000 people, the largest mass arrest in U.S. history. close
