The McCarthy Tapes: Resources

Minnesota Public Radio
December 8, 2006

The year 1968 was one of great change in the United States, socially and politically. The assassinations of two major figures, the growing opposition to the Vietnam War, the toppling of a sitting president, all contributed to the historic nature of that year.
