Why is 1968 considered an important turning point in U.S. history?
Tet Offensive: Jan. 31, 1968
At half-past midnight on Wednesday morning the North Vietnamese launched the Tet offensive at Nha Trang. Nearly 70,000 North Vietnamese troops took part in this broad action, taking the battle from the jungles to the cities. The offensive lasted several weeks and is seen as a major turning point for the American attitude toward the war.
During police actions following the first day of the Tet offensive General Nguyen Ngoc Loan, a South Vietnamese security official was captured on film executing a Viet Cong prisoner by American photographer Eddie Adams. The Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph became yet another rallying point for anti-war protestors. Despite later claims that the prisoner had been accused of murdering a Saigon police officer and his family, the image seems to call into question everything claimed and assumed about the American allies, the South Vietnamese.
February 1, 1968
Feb. 27, 1968: Walter Cronkite Reports
Although it would not become public knowledge for more than a year, US ground troops from Charlie Company rampaged through the hamlet of My Lai killing more than 500 Vietnamese civilians from infants to the elderly. The massacre continued for three hours until three American pilots intervened, positioning their helicopter between the troops and the fleeing Vietnamese and eventually carrying a handful of wounded to safety.
Massacre at My Lai: May 16, 1968
MLK, Jr. Assassination: April 4, 1968
Martin Luther King Jr. spent the day at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis working and meeting with local leaders on plans for his Poor People's March on Washington to take place late in the month. At 6pm, as he greeted the car and friends in the courtyard, King was shot with one round from a 30.06 rifle. He was declared dead just an hour later at St. Joseph's hospital. After an international man-hunt James Earl Ray was arrested on June 27 in England, and convicted of the murder. Ray died in prison in 1998.
Robert Kennedy, hearing of the murder just before giving a speech in Indianapolis, IN, delivers a powerful extemporaneous eulogy in which he pleaded with the audience "to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world."
The King assassination sparked rioting in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Newark, Washington, D.C., and many other places. Across the country 46 deaths were blamed on the riots.
Columbia University Protest/Occupation: April 23, 1968
A rally and occupation of the Low administrative office building at Columbia University, planned to protest the university's participation in the Institute for Defense Analysis is scuttled by conservative students and university security officers. The demonstrators march to the site of a proposed new gymnasium at Morningside Heights to stage a protest in support of neighbors who use the site for recreation. The action eventually resulted in the occupation of five buildings - Hamilton, Low, Fairweather and Mathematics halls, and the Architecture building. It ended seven days later when police stormed the buildings and violently removed the students and their supporters at the Columbia administration's request.
In France, "Bloody Monday" marks one of the most violent days of the Parisian student revolt. Five thousand students marched through the Latin Quarter with support from the student union and the instructors' union. Reports of the ensuing riot conflict, either the police charged unprevoked, or demonstrators harassed them with thrown stones. The fighting was intense with rioters setting up barricades and the police attacking with gas grenades.
French Student Protests: May 6, 1968
June 4,5,6, 1968: Robert Kennedy Assassinated
On the night of the California Primary Robert Kennedy addressed a large crowd of supporters at the Ambassador Hotel in San Francisco. He won victories in California and South Dakota and was confident that his campaign would go on to unite the many factions stressing the country. As he left the stage, at 12:13AM on the morning of the 5th, Sirhan Sirhan, a 24 year old Jordanian living in Los Angeles, shot Kennedy. The motive for the shooting was apparently anger at several pro-Isreali speeches Kennedy had made during the campaign. The forty-two year old Kennedy died in the early morning of June 6th.
Prague Spring Continues: June 27, 1968
As the "Prague Spring" continued in Czechoslovakia Ludvik Vaculik released his manifesto "Two Thousand Words". This essay, criticizing Communist rule in Czechoslovakia and concluding with an overt threat to "foreign forces" trying to control the government of the country, was seen as a direct challenge to the Soviet Administration who extended ongoing military exercises in the country, and began planning for their invasion later in the summer.
The Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia with over 200,000 Warsaw Pact troops, putting an end to the "Prague Spring," and beginning a period of enforced and oppressive "normalization."
August 20, 1968: Soviet Crackdown in Prague
August 26-28: Democratic National Convention in Chicago
By most accounts, on Wednesday evening Chicago police take action against crowds of demonstrators without provocation. The police beat some marchers unconscious and sent at least 100 to emergency rooms while arresting 175.
Mayor Daley tried the next day to explain the police action at a press conference. He famously explained: "The policeman isn't there to create disorder, the policeman is there to preserve disorder."
October 2, 1968: Mexico City Student Protests
Police and military troops in Mexico City reacted violently to a student-led protest in Tlatelolco Square. Hundreds of the demonstrators were killed or injured.
The Summer Olympic Games opened in Mexico City. The games were boycotted by 32 African nations in protest of South Africa's participation. On the 18th, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, US athletes and medalists in the 200-meter dash further disrupted the games by performing the black power salute during the "Star-Spangled Banner" at their medal ceremony.
October 12-18, 1968: Olympic Protest
October 31, 1968: No more bombs?
President Johnson announces a total halt to US bombing in North Vietnam.
November 5, 1968: Election Day
The results of the popular vote are 31,770,000 for Nixon, 43.4 percent of the total; 31,270,000 or 42.7 percent for Humphrey; 9,906,000 or 13.5 percent for Wallace; and 0.4 percent for other candidates.

-Korea divided
-Partial elections (1948)
-Invasion (1950)
-UN support for S. Korea

In Korea the Government forces, which were armed to prevent border raids and to preserve internal security, were attacked by invading forces from North Korea. The Security Council of the United Nations called upon the invading troops to cease hostilities and to withdraw to the Thirty-eighth Parallel. This they have not done, but on the contrary have pressed the attack.

In these circumstances I have ordered United States air and sea forces to give the Korean Government troops cover and support.
The attack upon Korea makes it plain beyond all doubt that communism has passed beyond the use of subversion to conquer independent nations and will now use armed invasion and war. It has defied the orders of the Security Council of the United Nations issued to preserve international peace and security.
President Truman's statement on Korea, June 2, 1950
Never-ending War

September 11, 2001
American poet Walt Whitman argued, “The greatest country, the richest country, is not that which has the most capitalists, monopolists, immense grabbings, vast fortunes, with its sad, sad soil of extreme, degrading, damning poverty, but the land in which there are the most homesteads, freeholds — where wealth does not show such contrasts high and low, where all men have enough — a modest living— and no man is made possessor beyond the sane and beautiful necessities.”

Does Whitman's claim match the trajectory of U.S. history? Why or why not?

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis said, “We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

Support, modify, or refute this argument.

"One of the reasons inequality gets so deep in this country is that everyone wants to be rich. That's the American ideal. Poor people don't like talking about poverty because even though they might live in the projects surrounded by other poor people and have, like, ten dollars in the bank, they don't like to think of themselves as poor."

-Jay-Z, 2010

“Your child’s future was the first to go with budget cuts. If you think that hurts, then wait, here comes the uppercut. The school was garbage in the first place that’s on the up and up.”

Early 20th century example:
U.S. foreign policy changed drastically after the first World War from a position of leadership and intervention to a position of isolation. Leadership and intervention were clear in the role Woodrow Wilson played in negotiating the Treaty of Versailles, especially in his Fourteen Points which called for the creation of the League of Nations (Doc. 2). Senator Henry Cabot Lodge was one of the leaders of the return to isolationism when he opposed the League of Nations on the grounds that it could draw the U.S. into foreign wars (Doc. 4). Ultimately, the U.S. did not join this international organization and instead maintained its ability to act independently of other countries.

14th Amendment
14th Amendment Booklet

-Text and significance of clauses (3)
-Timeline events (23)
-5 Ws (who, what, when, where, why)
-Relevance to 14th Amendment or to specific clause
-Impact/effect for people in the U.S.
-Conclusion (significance of 14th Am.)
Arguably, Section 1 of the 14th Amendment has had more impact on law in the United States in the 20th and 21st centuries than any other provision of the United States Constitution. Many
constitutional scholars refer to the 14th Amendment as the Great Amendment.

There are several reasons for that:
 We cannot have a conversation about the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights in 21st century, or really since 1865, without referencing the 14th Amendment.
 Without the 14th Amendment, the Bill of Rights has very little impact in our lives.
 Every time the Supreme Court of the United States is considering the constitutionality of a state law, the 14th Amendment is implicated.
 The Civil Rights Movement did not happen without the 14th Amendment.
 The protection of everyone’s constitutional rights hinge on the language of the 14th Amendment
The Great Amendment
