(Answered) HIST&148 D1 10605 DA9 In other words, what events or developments of the 1970’s created a kind of anxiety that many Americans have wanted to forget?

Week 9 Discussion Assignment – 30 points total

I. Original Message (15 pts) Post a brief (approx. 250 word) message addressing one of the following questions. Be sure to use information and examples from the textbook:

1. A Lost Decade. Very few Americans with memories of the 1970’s look back on the 1970’s with fondness.

Another way to think of it: what did events of 1968 bring to an end, and what did they begin?

Many Americans opposed the Vietnam War, believing it to be a futile struggle that should not have prompted a draft.
