This button was most likely worn by protestors during the 1967 March on the Pentagon. On October 21 and 22, 1967, hundreds of thousands of protestors marched on Washington D.C. to oppose the Vietnam War. One event that weekend was the March on the Pentagon during which protestors aimed to famously "levitate" the Pentagon building. About 50,000 people marched from the Lincoln Memorial to the Pentagon. Around 650 people were arrested for civil disobedience.
