      True

This tragic incident involved the killing of hundreds of unarmed Vietnamese civilians, including women, children, and elderly people, in the village of My Lai. The soldiers, under the leadership of Lieutenant William Calley, carried out these atrocities. The event shocked the world when it was revealed, highlighting the indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians by U.S. forces during the war. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects the U.S.'s involvement in killing civilians from the south at My Lai.
