Storyboard Text

  • The Carrot and the Stick
  • President Nixon wanted to use a tactic that had rewarding actions with punishing actions.
  • Protests Begin
  • Do you know about all of the antiwar protests that went on?
  • They happened in many different cities!
  • Shunned Heros
  • My grandfather served in the Vietnam War, but he does not like to talk about his experiences.
  • This slide mentions the tactic that Nixon used to end the war. He used Vietnamization to let South Vietnam take over. He also offered to withdraw U.S. troops and end bombing. The "stick" part of the approach was to invade Cambodia to destroy enemy safe havens.
  • Broken Promise
  • I can't believe North Vietnam violated the cease-fire!
  • They proved that we should not trust them.
  • This mentions the anti war protests that took place during the War. The protests became violent at Kent State, killing four students. At this time, the Pentagon Papers were released, and case went to the Supreme Court. The Court ruled in favor of freedom of speech.
  • The Aftermath
  • The people in Southeast Asia suffered after the war because of the communist takeovers.
  • This slide mentions how the soldiers felt after the War. U.S. troops were freed when the Paris Peace Accords were signed. When the soldiers returned home, they were often shunned or ignored. Many suffered from mental illnesses and did not want to talk about war.
  • Failed Peace
  • North Vietnam broke the pact with South Vietnam, causing them to surrender. North Vietnam had planned a final invasion, so the U.S. helped South Vietnam by airlifting thousands of people to safety. Even with help, they had to surrender, ending the war.
  • After the War, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia suffered communist revolts. They faced hard labor and collective farms. Many people moved to the U.S. There, people tried to forget the war. They did not come to terms with it until a monument was made to honor it.
  • Americans were upset about the War. They believed that there was no point fighting it. The loss suggested that the U.S. should not be a world leader. For years, they reduced involvement in global conflicts, and people no longer automatically trusted their leaders.
  • Nixon wanted to achieve a peaceful end to the Vietnam War, but he failed to achieve his goal.
