LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, Austin, Texas
This exhibit explored one of the most complicated, contested, and painful wars in our nation’s past, as seen through the eyes of the Americans who lived it. Evidence of War reflected an impressive array of unique sources for exploring the viewpoints of soldiers and veterans, politicians and constituents, reporters and photojournalists, advocates and protesters. The exhibit also displayed valuable sources for research on how the war was reflected in art, music, and popular culture. Drawn from the extensive materials housed in the Briscoe Center’s archival collections, Vietnam: Evidence of War included original photographs, artifacts, letters, publications, posters, oral history interviews, and more, many of which had never before been exhibited.
