#247 – The Camden 28

At the height of the Vietnam conflict, a group of 28 Christians – the majority of whom were Catholic – took a stand against a war they considered unjust even if meant breaking the law. There actions would lead to what Supreme Court Justice William Brennan would call one of the greatest trials of the 20th century.
