Vietnam War 2 One of the greatest eras of change for Americans was the 1960s. During the 1950s the Civil Rights Movement took a strong stand in America. The many strategies used for African Americans to obtain their freedom in the 1950s: freedom rides, protest, sit-ins, boycotts, and even challenging officials. These same strategies would be used in the 1960s for the “youth of America” could send their message across and be heard. The foundation for the anti-war movement came from the Civil Rights Movement. On May 18, 1917 the 65 th United States Congress passed the Selective Service Act of 1917. This act requires males in the United States to register for the Selective Service Draft when reaching the age of 18 and no longer then by the age of 26. Throughout American history this Draft was activated to reinforce the troops in different wars, 2.8 million men were drafted by the end of World War One (WWI), “About 10 million by World War Two (WWII) (Zebrowski, 2007),” approximately 1.7 million men for the Korean War (Kolb, 2010), and Vietnam War about 2.2 million men drafted had the most resistance than any other war before it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
