Catonsville Nine: 40th anniversary

The Catonsville Nine were nine Catholics who burned draft records (with homemade napalm) to protest the Vietnam War on May 17, 1968.

One of the nine was our friend, the late Tom Lewis. We interviewed him in January about the anniversary.

Recent articles about the anniversary include Joe Tropea’s “Hit and Stay” and “Lessons from the Catonsville Nine” by Ron Manuto and Sean Patrick OÂ’’Rourke.
