MORRISON - 1965

On Nov. 2, 1965,  Norman Morrison, 32, a devout Quaker, set himself ablaze outside the Pentagon to protest the war in Vietnam. Morrison had taken his baby daughter, Emily, with him and either set her down or handed her off before dousing himself in gasoline beneath the office of Defense Secretary Robert McNamara.
