The National Archives’ new exhibition, Remembering Vietnam: Twelve Critical Episodes in the Vietnam War, is now open to the public. In the first major exhibition on the war in the Archives’ history – and the only formal U.S. government exhibit recognizing the 50th anniversary – Remembering Vietnam will use original documents, artifacts, and film footage to explore the policies and decisions that initiated and then escalated American economic and military aid to South Vietnam. Interviews with veterans, journalists, members of the peace movement, Vietnamese civilians, and leading Vietnam War historians provide first-person testimony and analysis of the events.
Remembering Vietnam is free and open to the public, and will be on display in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery of the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC, through January 6, 2019. More information is available at: https://www.archivesfoundation.org/vietnam.
Remembering Vietnam is presented in part by the Lawrence F. O’Brien Family, Pritzker Military Museum & Library, AARP, FedEx Corporation, and the National Archives Foundation. Additional support provided by the Maris S. Cuneo Foundation, The Eliasberg Family Foundation, Inc., and HISTORYⓇ. The Opening Weekend Celebration is presented in part by L3 Technologies, Inc. and Bell Helicopter.
