I created this page as part of a final
project for Prof. Figueroa's Historiography class. This project entails applying the
new methodologies available to us through the Internet Our class has been split into
groups and given topics to research. The results of that research are then posted
on the Internet for everyone to see our mistakes.
I am a member
of Group One, the most academically outstanding project group in History 300. We are
studying the turbulent Vietnam Era of America's history. Each member has a different
task to fulfill, so that combined we hope to give the reader/websurfer a good view of
Vietnam's impact on America.
I have personally researched individual dissidents who opposed the war such as
Abbie Hoffman, Tom Hayden, Eldridge Cleaver, and David Dellinger. I hope to give a
brief outline of their biographical background as well as their actions in protest to the
war. The protest movement was so large it is hard to fit in all the main players
who influenced the movement. I hope the individuals I picked will give an
archtypical view of American anti-war dissidents.
