GALLERY IX - THE FINAL CHAPTER

As visitors enter this gallery they will be presented with impression they are standing atop the US Embassy awaiting helicopter evacuation from Saigon. The events from the signing of the peace treaty marking the end of US combat operations in Vietnam, to the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975 will be examined in depth.

The US withdrawal, the 1972 "Easter Offensive," the provisions of the treaty that left communist forces in place in South Vietnam, and US political actions that led to the military conquest of the South will be presented to the visitors in a historical context.

Also addressed will be a description of how the term Vietnam has become associated with a failed political agenda, and whether that comparison is justified in light of the current world situation.
