At 12:24 p.m., “members of the Ohio National Guard fired into a crowd of Kent State University demonstrators.” They fired 67 bullets at the protestors.
Odd little known fact: Chrissie Hynde, future star of the Pretenders, and the bassist/singer for Devo, were both in the crowd at Kent State that day.
