On November 15, 1969 over 500,000 protestors convened on Washington D.C. to protest the Vietnam War. Marches up and down Pennsylvania Avenue took place throughout the protest, which lasted about three days, from Thursday, November 13th to Saturday the 15th. Protestors made anti-war chants, sung songs of peace, and held signs with the names of deceased U.S. troops or destroyed Vietnamese villages. While unsuccessful in ending the war, the march demonstrated the strong organizational power of the anti-war activists.
