This thesis tells of the protest events at Miami University in the late 1960s and the spring of 1970. Students protested the Vietnam War as well as local issues concerning African Americans at the university. In April of 1970, two events ratcheted up tensions betweens Miami students, administrators and local law enforcement. The first was a sit-in at the ROTC building, Rowan Hall, following a peace rally on the lawn of Roudebush Hall. Local law enforcement forcibly removed the students from the building, inciting a riot scene in the streets of Oxford. The second was the great Miami flush-in when Oxford's water supply was purposely drained in support of some student demands. The events of those days in April and the surrounding months and years brought the spirit of the 1960s in America to the quaint campus of Miami University.
