  • Overview

    We are excited to announce the extension of our popular exhibition at the Empire State Plaza's Vietnam Memorial Gallery, 1969.  

    “Completely fascinating--everything from the Moon Landing to the burning of the Cuyahoga River, most of which I read about from the distant planet that was Viet Nam, where we were living our own often-harrowing piece of the year.” 

    Susan O'Neill, RN, U.S. Army Nurse Corp

    1969 concluded one of the most iconic and turbulent decades in our nation's history. It was a year of seminal events that would eventually become ingrained in the heart and soul of America. From war to Woodstock, from Sesame Street to the moon- it was a year where events across the country shaped our culture. It was a time when our nation was full of polarized ideologies, emotions, and reactions.  As a new president took office with a new foreign policy strategy, the Vietnam War was televised to living rooms across the country, inspiring a range of responses.

    Journey back to 1969 to explore the events and stories of a watershed year.
