were achieved when President Nixon and Soviet Premier Aleksey Kosygin held a summit conference in 1972 (Sage, 2014). A Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty was also signed during his time in office. His effort to reduce these tensions prevented the Cold War from turning into a nuclear war.

One of the most memorable events to occur during President Nixon’s time in office was the Watergate Scandal, which led to him resigning. This scandal consisted of a burglary at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee performed by personnel associated with his campaign (“Richard M. Nixon,” 2019). President Nixon denied any accusations of being involved in the act, but there was video evidence proving that he tried to cover it up. Half way through his second term on August 9, 1974, President Nixon resigned in order to prevent his impeachment (“Richard M. Nixon,” 2019). References: Richard M. Nixon. (2019, May 16). History.

    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.
