[Vietnam War] On November 15, 1969, more than 500,000 protesters flooded into Washington, D.C., for the Moratorium March

One of the largest anti-war protests of the Vietnam era took place on November 15, 1969 and it was known as the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam. This march saw half a million protestors take descend on Washington D.C. to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House in complete silence. The protest was peaceful until a fight broke out at DuPont Circle, imploring police to spray the crowd with tear gas.

The protestors scattered in an attempt to escape riot police, and many of them hid in schools and churches. After the protest President Nixon said:

Now, I understand that there has been, and continues to be, opposition to the war in Vietnam on the campuses and also in the nation. As far as this kind of activity is concerned, we expect it; however, under no circumstances will I be affected whatever by it.
