REVIEW:
Anyone interested in history and the Vietnam War in particular will find this site interesting. Users can explore background information on the war and the movement that opposed it. The site discusses the movement's effect on the war as well as the counter culture, violence, and campus unrest. In the Perspectives section, users can form their own opinions after reading the essays of those who were involved in the movement, such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. J. William Fulbright. The Multimedia Room houses several video clips, photographs, and audio clips of the era. This site is a great resource for report writing.
