1968 - America's Year of Crisis

1968 is remembered as the year that the United States nearly had a collective nervous breakdown. The year began with the Tet Offensive, during which North Vietnamese troops invaded the heavily guarded US Embassy in Saigon and ended with the election of Richard Nixon in November. Americans were exhausted. 10:30am at the East Bend Library and 1:00pm at the Redmond Library, Dr. William Rorabaugh from the University of Washington unpacks one of the most contentious years in American history. https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/
