The Meaning Of Tet

February 2024

The historian Victor Davis Hanson should really not jump on the revisionist bandwagon. Four million dead or wounded Vietnamese and 58,000 dead American servicemen would surely have a different opinion. We Students for a Democratic Society contributed to the self-critique of our society as it struggled with a terrible, divisive, and unjust war. Mr. Hanson should read Thomas Merton’s essay’s against the war; it is he who is on the wrong side of history.

We hope you enjoy our work.
