  •  Teamsters' Strike (7+ / 0-)

    Yes, the guardsmen that were sent to Kent had been called up prior to that for the Teamsters' strike, where they encountered real violence.

    As for the stuff about Ohio State, there is stuff in the comments of my other diary on the events of that weekend that discusses this. Most of what you say coincides with what others have said about what was going on at Ohio State that week. I think it was gooserock who added most of the information to the previous diaries about the events at Ohio State.

    Also, for gooserock or whoever it was that was talking about black students leaving Ohio State and going to Kent, I found a reference the other day to the Friday rally at Kent by Black United Students that said several of the speakers had come up from Ohio State to tell the Kent students about what was happening down there.

    •  Thanks for these diaries (0+ / 0-)

      And thanks also for the pointers to the comments in your previous diaries.  (I didn't absorb everything on the first reading.)

      I used to live in the United States of America. Now I live in a homeland.
