In the span of 13 seconds the Ohio National Guard fired 63 shots that killed 4 students and wounded 9. KENT STATE: THE DAY THE WAR CAME HOME chronicles the events leading up to May 4, 1970. The definitive story is told here for the first time. The haunting photograph of Mary Vecchio poised in anguish over the body of a slain student. The fervor of the wounded student activist still consumed by the need for justice 30 years later. The former Guardsman living with a badge of shame few could imagine. Some choose to forget. Others fight to keep their bitter lessons alive for new generations. Try as they may, the entire cast of survivors cannot escape the questions and the accusations that fly as each anniversary comes and goes. KENT STATE: THE DAY THE WAR CAME HOME is a portrait of the pain shared by an entire nation. After 40 years, the blood stains are not forgotten. Featuring music by Creedence Clearwater Revival and Jefferson Airplane.

Being a college student today, this movie had a profound effect on me. I was shocked that such a massacre could be carried out by those whose responsibly it is to protect us. It''s amazing how relevant this story remains 40 years later, especially as our country is entangled in questionable wars and increasingly curbing our rights.

From watching Kent State: The Day the War Came Home, I have seen a full and concise history of the event, from what caused it (Nixon's announcement of going into Cambodia), to what caused the National Guard to intervene (the street riots and the burning of the ROTC building), to the shooting and the aftermath. What I had not realized before (as a 27 year old) that this documentary brought to my attention, was the parallel between the violence at Kent State that the National Guard was causing to that of the violence the army was engaging into in Vietnam, all going to show that the hostility of the Vietnam War was not just overseas but on our soil as well. All in all, this documentary is an eye opener and I definitely recommend it for people who want to know about the Kent State shooting as well as a sampling of the Vietnam War Era.

Definitely the document of record on the subject of Kent state. The film feels almost as if the main people involved in the shootings (including the shooters themselves) decided on their own to get together to privately discuss exactly what they saw happen and how they felt about it. It's a remarkable lesson on the reality of how quickly things can escalate when they don't have to and a film every National Guard member and police officer would be well advised to watch as a training film on how NOT to conduct crowd control.

This is the best documentary that I've seen on the Kent State shootings. This one features people who were actually there including guardsmen and students (including several who were wounded).
