Election year, 1968, was one of the most tumultuous election years in American history. A “new Nixon” promised to end the Vietnam War, restore order to the nation’s cities and campuses and to nominate Supreme Court Justices who did not coddle criminals. I represent, he said, the nation’s “silent majority”, people who stay married, pay their taxes and support their government. With this year being a presidential election year, please join us as we review five of the most critical presidential elections in American History. This is the final lecture of a five lecture series and is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Needham. For questions contact 781-455-7559.
