A Presidential Decision
In "A Presidential Decision," participants will assume one of ten roles in the Johnson administration--either President Johnson or a member of the President's National Security Council and other invited specialists. The task is to become familiar with pertinent documents and advise the President on whether or not to escalate the bombing in Vietnam during the summer of 1965.
Before arriving, teachers or leaders will receive preparation materials to give participants background knowledge on the roles, primary sources, and the Vietnam War.
