Suits, Soldiers, and Hippies The Vietnam War Abroad and at Princeton
on display in the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library
The Vietnam War was one of America’s longest and most controversial wars. Suits, Soldiers, and Hippies: The Vietnam War Abroad and at Princeton is a new exhibition at Princeton University’s Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library that highlights the major events of the war such as the Gulf of Tonkin incident, the Tet Offensive, and the invasion of Cambodia, and focuses on how these events affected government policy and American society at large. More than a mere narrative of events, the exhibition reveals the perspectives of the individuals involved in the war including policy makers, soldiers, and every day citizens.
