Series VI. Iraq War Response, 2005-2008

Scope and Content Notes:

Series VI contains mail and correspondence sent to Rep. Murtha from those approving and disapproving of his stance on the Iraq War. In November 2005, Rep. Murtha spoke at a press conference against the war, calling it "a policy wrapped in illusion." As a result of his statement, he received a great deal of mail and media attention reflecting the opinions of the nation and his constituents on the conflict and occupation. The letters are largely separated between Pro and Con opinions of Rep. Murtha's actions and arranged chronologically.
