A prime-time broadcast by President Nixon, forty-five years ago today, ignited a fuse to powder kegs at American college campuses. At Kent State University one of these kegs would explode into four days of protests, riots and tragedy when National Guardsmen opened fire on thousands of protesters on Blanket Hill… killing four students.
THE BLANKET HILL INSURGENCY, a novel, begins a Kindle 61% discount special for $1.99 (FREE for Kindle Unlimited). Follow young adults, students and soldiers, as an emerging culture clashes with established values. Relive the days when traditional pastimes and concerns yield to US engagement in Southeast Asia. The campus traditions of Homecoming, building relationships and studies gave way to the burning of draft cards, fleeing to Canada and altercations with authority. Although historical, this work encompasses romance, tragedy, military and literary fiction genres. http://amazon.com/dp/B00UAO66WW
