The Kent State Shootings, May 4, 1970

Forty-five years ago on May 4th, 1970, Ohio National Guard troops opened fire on unarmed students at Kent State University who were protesting the American invasion of Cambodia.  In a period of 13 seconds, the National Guard troops wounded nine and killed four.  The map above, prepared for the Commission on Campus Unrest, shows “the Commons” area on the Kent State Campus, the movement of the National Guardsmen, and the locations where students were shot. 

Two days earlier on May 2, 1970, the mayor of Kent, Ohio, LeRoy M. Satrom,  had written to the Commander of Troops, Ohio National Guard, requesting assistance in restoring order to the city, particularly near Kent State University. This is a photostatic copy of Mayor Satrom’s letter that was submitted to the President’s Commission on Campus Unrest.
