The Vietnam War- 1957

The war had begun in 1957 as a battle for control of South Vietnam between the non-Communist government and Communists. In the late 1950's and early 1960's, presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy sent military aid and advisers to support the South Vietnam government

A majority of Americans supported the war effort at first, but others bitterly opposed it. In the late 1960's, opposition to the war grew.
