    1975 fall of South Vietnam

    • Jerri Berkley

      When President Nixon took office in 1969, there was heavy protestation to the Vietnam War. His gradual withdrawal of American troops led to the fall of Saigon and the fall of South Vietnam to Communist North Vietnam. While humiliating to the U.S., it created terror and despair for the South Vietnamese as they tried to evacuate the city as the VietCong marched to it.
