1974: Eight Ohio National Guardsmen are indicted on charges stemming from the shooting deaths of four unarmed students during a Vietnam War protest at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. A judge would later dismiss all charges on the basis that the prosecution's case was too weak to warrant a trial. This printed map detailing the locations of structures, troop movements, bullet hole locations, and locations of casualties at the Kent State shooting was produced by President Richard Nixon's Commission on Campus Unrest.
