Summary In the spring of 1968, a group of Catholic anti-war activists barged into a draft board in suburban Baltimore, stole hundreds of Selective Service records, and burned the documents. The bold actions of the 'Catonsville Nine' became international news. This book tells the story of this singular witness for peace and social justice.
