Womens March on the Pentagon to Confront the Bi-partisan War Machine On October 21, 1967, 50,000 people marched on the Pentagon in opposition to the escalation of US imperialist aggression in Vietnam. An anti-war rally was held at West Potomac park near the Lincoln Memorial where 70,000 people had gathered for a concert by musician and peace activist Phil Ochs. Both groups joined together and marched; this action was to be known as the March on the Pentagon. 
During 1967 there were numerous anti-war marches across the nation in all major cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, DC.
