Vietnam War by Mind Map: Vietnam War

1. Anti-War Protesters, Agent Orange, Tet Offensive, escalation, doves, Draft Dogers, Hawk

1.1. As tensions escalated in Vietnam, the u.s. thought it would slow down because holiday. Yet the Tet offensive happened when north Vietnam soldiers stuck on south Vietnam and U.S soldiers. Then we released agent orange which are Napalm strikes showing that we are not defeated. This made the counterculture angry because they are Anti-War Protesters since they opposed war, they were also called Doves. The opposite is called a Hawk, one who supported the U.S. war efforts. After the Northern Attacks, the military needed more troops so they opened up the draft. People called Draft Dogers tried to escape the draft by posing as priests, claiming physical disablements and even moving to Canada or Mexico.

2. Fall of Saigon, Paris Peace Accords, Vietcong, Domino Theory

2.1. The Fall of Saigon marked the official end of the war forcing citizens and troops to cling onto American Helicopters bringing evac. The U.S., Vietcong, North and South Vietnam later signed the Paris Peace Accords which agrees to a cease fire and allowed the placement of Northern troops in South Vietnam. This proves the Domino Theory justice because after the North took over south Vietnam, they also took over Cambodia and the surrounding countries.

3. Ho Chi Minh, Ho Chi Minh Trail, Vietminh

3.1. Ho Chi Minh was the Leader of the communist party of North Vietnam, and the Vietminh. The Ho Chi Minh Trail's purpose was to be a hot wire for supplies for North Vietnam aiding them in the war. The Trails were located in Mountains and Jungles linking north Vietnam to South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

4. Geneva Accords, Gulf of Tonkin resolution

4.1. The Geneva Accords is when the French surrendered and begged for mercy and peace. French was involved because of the Domino Theory where the surrounding countries jump in to help. French Surrendering allowed the U.S. to intervene. Congress passes the Gulf of Tonkin resolution allowing the U.S. to intervene and fight in the war.

5. Ngo Dinh Diem

5.1. Diem was the leader of South Vietnam. He was not a good leader but he was Anti- Communist.
