06.07 Assignment
Explain how events such as the Vietnam War and Watergate affected the American public’s opinion of the U.S government.
You must complete all three parts of the assignment

Part1: This assignment asked us to answer this following question.
Explain how events such as the Vietnam War and Watergate affected the American public’s opinion of the U.S government.
In my personalized opinion, I feel as though this question is asking for the American citizens views upon the United States Government. They ask of our opinions towards the elected officials during the events. Although they both caused a big impact on society, Vietnam's war was first to be televised in color called the "living room war". Most of the Baby Boom generation either served in the war or against it. The watergate made americans feel disillusioned with the lack of trust in the United States Government.
