On July 20, 1969, Americans proudly tuned in to watch Neil Armstrong become the first man to walk on the moon. It was a singular moment for celebration. Yet, as this program reveals, the '60s, '70s, and '80s saw far too many other years filled with turmoil. The Vietnam War raged on as different factions of America questioned whether America should even be involved in the conflict. Watergate caused ordinary citizens to deeply question the honesty of their politicians, particularly those serving in the highest offices. The film covers Nixon's resignation in 1974 and Ford's decision to pardon him, which did little to ease the strain on the country's damaged morale. President Reagan's policies placated some during the '80s while irritating others who disagreed with his conservative ideology. The ongoing results stemming from the fall of the Soviet Union are also studied. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
