Thursday October 21  Election of 1968 In 1968, President Johnson chose not to seek a reelection after  barely winning the Democratic primary against Robert Kennedy.  Nixon, the Republican candidate, promised the he had a “secret  plan” to win Vietnam with peace an honor.   This secret became the Nixon Doctrine, which showed Nixon’s  opinion that the United States need not be the “world policeman”  any longer.    Vietnamization  was Nixon’s idea that the South Vietnamese  should be doing the bulk of the fighting against North Vietnam.  General Unrest  In 1969, there was a march on Washington protesting the  Vietnam War, mostly out of unease on college campuses because  of the draft.   At this time, many of the elite were able to avoid being drafted  into the war, so Nixon instated the  draft lottery , which called  men up by their birthdays.

    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.
