Directions: Read Chapter 26 of Foner’s Give Me Liberty!, watch the video segments on Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan, and read/watch the links pertaining to the Kent State University protests on May 4, 1970. Then answer the following questions in your original post:

How did the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal affect the peoples’ trust in the U.S. government? What specific incident(s) do you think had the greatest impact on public perception? Do you think Ford, Carter, and Reagan helped people re-gain trust in the government? Why or why not?
