THE TET OFFENSIVE @ 50 Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 1 p.m. January 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the TET Offensive. TET was the largest and most important campaign of the Vietnam War. Taking advantage of a cease-fire to celebrate the first day of the Vietnamese New Year, Vietcong fighters launched attacks against virtually every significant target in South Vietnam. Although General Westmoreland correctly judged the attack to be a complete military failure the more immediate impact of TET was political. TET re-energized the anti-war movement at home exploding all official assurances that America was winning in Vietnam and that the war would soon be over. MAO’s CULTURAL REVOLUTION Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 10 a.m. (Continental Breakfast Provided by Timothy Daniels House) Fear that the Chinese people had lost their revolutionary fervor, Mao Zedong urged the creation of the “Red Guards” to purge the nation of the creeping “impure” elements of the “Four Olds”: old customs, old culture, old habits and old ideas. Mao believed that the Chinese Revolution of 1949 had to be a continuous process to prevent the growth of bourgeois capitalist ideas. Chaos followed.
