On October 14, 1968, 50 years ago, 27 prisoners in the Presidio Stockade staged a peaceful sit-down protest to call attention to the treatment of fellow prisoners in the stockade, and the conditions inside. For that action, they were tried for mutiny.
Dive deeper into the history of the Presidio 27 through a panel discussion followed by audience Q&A where we'll discuss the contemporary relevance of the Presidio 27. Presidio Trust Historian, Barbara Berglund Sokolov, will moderate a conversation with panelists David Cortright, Director of Policy Studies at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame and author of Soldiers in Revolt: GI Resistance During the Vietnam War; Jeff Patterson of Courage to Resist, first service member to refuse to fight in Iraq; Randy Rowland, one of the Presidio 27; Susan Schnall, Navy nurse court-martialed for her actions against the Vietnam War; and Brendan Sullivan, Army defense attorney for the Presidio 27.
