Updated: Wednesday, September 18 2013, 06:26 AM EDT
More than 40 years ago, the country was divided by the Vietnam war.
   
One of its most vocal activists: actress Jane Fonda.
   
On this day back in 1972, Fonda and her then-husband Tom Hayden attended a peace rally in New Paltz.
   
They were guests on a radio call-in program and met with hundreds of anti-war activists at a rally.
   
Fonda said she expected the anti-war efforts to continue until the war ended.
