The American Presidential Election of 1968 Tell a Friend about this Course

The presidential election of 1968 reflected the chaos of that watershed year in American history, with the issues personified in the nine men that pursued the position - Robert F. Kennedy, Eugene McCarthy, George Wallace and Hubert Humphrey on the Democratic side; Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Rockefeller and George Romney on the Republican side. While the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement and protests around the globe were backdrops to the campaigns, the nation witnessed the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, along with the tumultuous Democratic Convention in Chicago, only adding to the drama of the race. How did this all play into Richard Nixon's eventual win and what were the consequences of this much documented election?
