On January 30, 1968, the Viet Cong and North Vietnam launched a major offensive. This series of attacks was called the
since it occurred during Tet, the Vietnamese New Year.
During and after the Tet Offensive, both sides were guilty of brutal atrocities. Communists slaughtered anyone they labeled an enemy; Americans massacred hundreds of civilians at My Lai, a small village in South Vietnam. A helicopter crew that stopped the massacre was later rewarded, and the officer who had ordered it was imprisoned.
Because Americans now knew that the Viet Cong could launch massive attacks, and because no end to the war was in sight, the Tet Offensive proved to be a major psychological victory for the Viet Cong and a turning point in the war.Slide18

Johnson Decides Not to Run
Continuing protests and an increasing number of casualties steadily decreased popular support for Johnson’s handling of the war.
After the Tet Offensive, Johnson rarely left the White House for fear of angry protesters.
Two other Democratic contenders, antiwar candidate Eugene McCarthy and Robert Kennedy, brother of John Kennedy and a senator from New York, campaigned against Johnson for the party’s nomination.
On March 31, 1968, Johnson announced in a nationally televised speech that he would not seek another term as President.Slide24
Impact of the Vietnam War
I do not believe that I should devote an hour or a day of my time to any personal partisan causes, or to any duties other than the awesome duties of this office, the Presidency of your country.
Johnson announces (March, 1968):
Accordingly, I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President. CLIPSlide25
The Election of 1968
The Democratic Convention
At the time of the Democratic Convention in Chicago, Eugene McCarthy was thought too far out of the mainstream, and Robert Kennedy had been assassinated.
During the convention, police attacked protesters, with much of the violence taking place in front of television cameras.
Vice President Hubert Humphrey won the Democratic nomination, but the party had been further torn apart by the convention’s events.
The Nation Chooses Nixon
Richard M. Nixon received the Republican Party’s nomination for President.
Nixon soon took the lead in national polls, allowing his running mate Spiro Agnew to make harsh accusations, while Nixon stayed “above the fray.”
Independent candidate George C. Wallace drew many votes. Additionally, many disillusioned Democrats did not vote.
In a close race, Nixon won the presidency in the 1968 election.Slide26
A delegation of the most senior members of Congress, led by Barry Goldwater, informed the President that no more than 15 Senators still supported him
On August 9, 1974, Nixon resigned
Vice President Gerald Ford became President and a month later pardoned Nixon Slide79
