The pictures on this website come from a 1950 issue of Collier's magazine. They show what the effect of an atomic bomb would be if it were dropped on New York City. Think of some words to describe how people in 1950 might have felt when reading that article?

BONUS: How do you think ideas like this contributed to Cold War tensions in the United States?

Nixon’s Vietnam Treachery

'Nixon insisted that he had not sabotaged Johnson’s 1968 peace initiative to bring the war in Vietnam to an early conclusion ... Now we know Nixon lied. A newfound cache of notes left by H. R. Haldeman, his closest aide, shows that Nixon directed his campaign’s efforts to scuttle the peace talks, which he feared could give his opponent, Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, an edge in the 1968 election.'
