Presentation: The Rise of Richard Nixon

37th President Richard Nixon’s administration is one of the more interesting parts of American History. From his brash campaign for the senate against Helen Douglas to his cutthroat elections in 1960, 1968, and 1972, Richard Nixon manages to remain one of the more memorable presidents in the 20th century. Of course, everyone remembers Watergate, with polls putting him much lower than he should be based merely on that one topic. History isn’t fading, but the public opinion seems to be limited to one subject. This presentation, based from the A-Leveled AICE curriculum, is on the Rise of Richard Nixon, from his first political foothold in 1945 to his reelection as President of the United States in 1972. This was used in a classroom environment, hence the assignment.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I’m a writer and historian. Simple enough, right? I enjoy philosophy, sociology, social psychology, politics, basic programming, statistics, and old books. Unlike the stereotypical leftist, I do not necessarily censor myself. I apologize in advance if you find yourself offended by something I’ve said; but I do enjoy hearing criticism and having debates.

    How could you compare and contrast women’s roles in New England with women’s roles in The South? Colonial America had a rather deep division between the north and south.
