dc.description.abstractIn the midst of a war that was being fought not on open battlefields but in dense jungles, an atrocious event occurred in the presence of soldiers of the United States military. Over five hundred Vietnamese civilians, the majority of whom were women and children, died at the hands of U.S. soldiers on March 16, 1968, in the hamlet of My Lai. The United States Army conducted its own investigation of the events within days. American troops, ranging from privates up through corporals and captains, knew of the event and what had occurred. For nearly a year the events were kept secret under a U.S. Army cover-up. Using the Peers Commission report, this study will show that the United States military intentionally covered-up the events at the My Lai hamlet of March 16, 1968, and how it was possible for an event of this magnitude to be kept secret.en
