1969: Anti-war protesters in Washington, D.C., stage a symbolic March Against Death, with 45,000 participants each carrying a placard bearing the name of a soldier who had died in Vietnam. The march, which started at Arlington National Cemetery and continued past the White House, would go on for two days and two nights. Pictured is a poster designed by march organizers featuring the drawing "The War Monster" by Pablo Picasso.
