National history, personal narratives
Life since May 4, 1970: students, towns-people and guardsmen
For some, the day changed everything. For others, life moved on
History contains facts.

Forty years ago a group of Ohio National Guard fired on students at the Kent State campus, killing four, wounding nine. This is a fact. But most of all, history is stories.

May 4th continues to resonate because of the many stories of lives touched by the event -- students, guardsmen, teachers, and towns-folk. Here are six of those stories -- six memories of the day the Vietnam War came home.
