Catonsville draft office raid

In Maryland, a group of activists who come to be known as the Catonsville Nine--including Catholic priests Daniel Berrigan, Philip Berrigan, and Thomas Melville--take hundreds of files from a local draft board and set them on fire with gasoline and homemade napalm in protest of the Vietnam War.
