Top Ten Vietnam War Web Sites
Vietnam Slide Show This site
by Peter Leuhusen is an excellent overview or introduction to the Vietnam War in
photographs and brief texts. The photos are mostly by combat photographer Tim
Page. The images are more human interest than gore. Stunning. The photos load
quickly in a well-designed and easy to navigate site.
The Chicago Seven Trial This website by Douglas O. Linder is part of the
Trials website created by the University of Missouri-Kansas City Law School.
Be sure to read at least some of the transcript of
Abbie Hoffman's testimony
during the trial. This primary source provides a vivid glimpse into the methods
and the madness of the Yippie revolutionaries who provoked the Chicago police to violence at the
1968 Democratic Convention.
