    (May 4, 1970-May 4, 1970)
    (May 4, 1970)
    During a student protest against the Vietnam War, the National Guard opened fire and shot 4 students
    Song, 'Ohio,' by Crosby Sills Nash and Young documents the incident
    The four students shot dead were Allison Krause, Jeff Miller, Bill Schroeder and Sandy Scheuer
    The nine students wounded were Alan Canfora, John Cleary, Tom Grace, Dean Kahler, Joe Lewis, Scott Mackenzie, Jim Russell, Robby Stamps and Doug Wrentmore
    Shooting incident lasted 13 seconds, but changed the mind of Americans forever
    The U.S. government claimed that outside agitators caused the incident, yet all thirteen victims were full time students.
    Scheuer and Schroeder, who were shot dead, were not part of the protest, they were just watching.
    America was mostly shocked that the dead included females in middle America.
    The student protesters were not totally innocent, since they burned down the ROTC building and were hurling rocks, provoking the National Guard.
    This was a major incident that united many Americans to seriously question their government.
    The questions included why would the National Guard be dispatched to a college and how could Americans kill other Americans?
    This incident sparked the first national collegiate strike.
