On the 4th of May 1970, nine unarmed Kent State University students were wounded and four were killed by the Ohio National Guard, at a peace rally opposing the expanding involvement of the Vietnam War into Cambodia by the USA military.

They were also protesting about the National Guard presence on campus.

The first video may not work for some people, so I have added a second video. The comments on YouTube that accompany the first video are particularly important.
