One-Day Seminar: Lyndon B. Johnson and the Vietnam War (hosted by the Ashbrook Center – Ashland, OH)

Sat, Apr 22, 10:30 am to 2:30 pm

President Lyndon Johnson believed the United States had an obligation to protect South Vietnam from a communist takeover. Despite the deployment of more than 500,000 troops and the sustained use of U.S. airpower, the United States was ultimately unable to prevent the fall of South Vietnam. In this seminar, we will use primary sources to analyze the reasons why Johnson believed Vietnam was so important to American interests and examine his key decisions about how the war would be fought.  

Discussion Leader: Dr. David Krugler, Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville
