The Berrigan Brothers


Daniel and Philip Berrigan, both Roman Catholic priests, were leaders of the antiwar movement in the United States in the 1960s. They achieved notoriety as members of the "Catonsville Nine" who, in May 1968, removed records from the local draft board in Catonsville, Maryland, and burned them. The Berrigans and others involved were arrested, tried, and convicted on charges of conspiracy and destruction of government property. Daniel was sentenced to three years in a federal prison; Philip was sentenced to three and one-half years, to run concurrently with a six-year sentence imposed previously for a conviction on similar charges.
