Trivia Question: What university ended up being besieged in 1968 during the Battle of Morningside Heights?
Answer: Columbia University
Though the term “battle” is often used to describe military engagements, it was still apt in a sense for this example. The students of Columbia University organized en masse to occupy their entire campus after they discovered information which they believed meant their college was prolonging the Vietnam War. Police officers and student protestors clashed as control of the college was slowly restored.

I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
