1965: A group of 600 civil rights marchers are forcefully broken up by state and local police with billy clubs and tear gas in Selma, Ala. Seventeen marchers are hospitalized, and the day was nicknamed "Bloody Sunday." Televised images of the attack roused support for the U.S. civil rights movement.
