What comes to mind when you think about the Vietnam Era? For many, that period represents a difficult time in U.S. history. It is defined by an unpopular war that claimed the lives of 58,000 Americans and some 3 million Vietnamese. In this course, you'll look at the history of the Vietnam War. The roots of the conflict stretch further back than you might know. You'll examine why the United States got involved in the conflict and why the United States failed to achieve its objectives.
This history elective created for Christian schools offers both a domestic and global political perspective of the three turbulent decades that left a permanent mark on American history, the Vietnam Era. This interactive course brings history to life and engages today's learners. From the initial involvement of the United States in Vietnam to the Paris cease-fire agreement signed in 1973, this six-unit history elective chronicles three turbulent decades of conflict that began in Southeast Asia but affected the entire world. Lessons examine French colonization, the Cold War, military strategy, and America's anti-war movement. Interactive, built-in timelines put the events of the conflict in historical perspective as they explore the people and events that shaped a nation and the world.
