Abstract:

In the early morning hours of August 24, 1970 a van loaded with six barrels of explosives blew up just outside the east wing of Sterling Hall on The University of Wisconsin campus in Madison. Those responsible were 4 men who called themselves the New Year's Gang and they were protesting America's involvement in the Vietnam War. The bombing was directed at the Mathematics Research Center which was an Army funded facility located in Sterling Hall. 26 buildings on campus were damaged in the bombing and 4 people were injured and Robert Fassnacht, a physics researcher was killed. Dwight Armstrong, Karleton Armstrong and David Fine all served prison terms, but Leo Burt has never been found. This documentary explores the climate on the campus before and after the bombing and interviews the people who were involved.
