Start of US Intervention in The Vietnam War
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video is accompanied by text. "In 1945, Communist leader Ho Chi Minh proclaimed a Democratic Republic of Vietnam and named Hanoi its capital.

In 1946, the French government recognized Ho's Viet Minh government as a "free state" within the northern portion of the French-controlled region.

Korean War Build-Up
From hippocampus.org
The Korean people and landscape were devastated by the extreme cruelty of the Japanese military during World War II. At the conclusion of the war, Japanese forces surrendered to both the U.S. and the Soviet Union in Korea. The surrendered left the USSR in control of the territory north of the 38th parallel and the U.S. in control of the territory to the south of the 38th parallel. Although the U.S. and the Soviet Union proclaimed to seek a unified Korea, both countries retained a sizable military presence. The United States and the Soviet Union engaged in nation building and established regimes on their respective sides of the 38th parallel and supplied these new regimes with weapons, supplies, and training. Eventually the U.S. and the Soviets withdrew from Korea but they left behind a divided country that by 1950 was on the brink of war.

Effects of the War on the South
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video is accompanied by text. "Lincoln interpreted his re-election as a validation of his war policy—battling against the South for unity and emancipation. He charged General Ulysses S.

Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse.
