Antioch Bookplate Co., WASHINGTON NOV[.] DAYS [:] JOIN THE MOBILIZATION NOVEMBER 13-15. Yellow Springs, OH: New Mobilization Committee, [1969.]
Large bifolium (16 ½”h x 11”w) printed on newsprint in black, blue and red, illustrated. Mild toning and a hint of wear to extremities, else excellent.

Extremely rare tabloid issued in advance of the November 1969 March on Washington, with an interesting map.

The march was organized by the Vietnam Moratorium Committee and is thought to have been the single largest antiwar protest in American history. Some half million participants descended on the national capital, heard speeches by Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern and others, and performances by Peter, Paul and Mary, Arlo Guthrie, and Pete Seeger.

This large tabloid brochure was designed and printed in support of the event by the Antioch Bookplate Co. of Yellow Springs, Ohio. The front wrap features an uncredited illustration of doves descending on the White House, and the rear wrap provides logistical information and instructions for participants. The centerfold is a large, two-color map of Washington, D.C., overprinted with the slogan “We Come in Peace” and a key listing the locations of reception and movement centers, assembly areas, bus routes, and rally sites.
