On May 4, 1970, National Guardsmen killed four students at Kent State University during a demonstration against the Vietnam War. The shootings set off a nationwide student strike that forced hundreds of schools to temporarily close.
At noon, the university is premiering a video that commemorates the nine students who were hurt when soldiers opened fire in 1970. The video will highlight the new markers installed on the May 4 site on campus, one for each of the wounded students. The nine markers are in addition to the four markers, installed in 1999, that remember the four students who were killed.
