The Vietnam War is the most debated war in United States history. It is also the only war we have ever lost. In the beginning there was a lot of popular support for U.S. involvement because people thought of it as a war against communism. Eventually, popular support declined because it seemed like a civil war in which the U.S. had no business. There was a lot of disagreement about this war in America, which led some to move from acts of civil disobedience to violent demonstrations on college campuses and majorities.
