The Three surprising things according to me during the journey through Modern American History are The U.S losing the Vietnam War: In 1949 China became communist and controlled North Vietnam. The USA feared that communism would spread to South Vietnam and then to entire Asia. In 1965 the tensions increased when the Viet Cong attacked and killed the American soldiers at the city of Pleiku. The air attack by President Johnson to stop the Viet Cong’s supply line did not harm it. Johnson then increased the manpower to stop the communists from winning.
