Tens of thousands of anti-Vietnam War protesters -- young people and military veterans alike -- converged on Washington, D.C., in May 1971. More than 7,000 of them were arrested in a single day. American History TV looked back 50 years at the forces that collided on the capital’s streets that spring with investigative journalist Lawrence Roberts. He is the author of Mayday 1971: A White House at War, a Revolt in the Streets, and the Untold History of America’s Biggest Mass Arrest. This was a joint production of American History TV and C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.” close
