This product is a document-based question activity on a Google form covering the reasons behind the Anti-War Movement.
Opposition to United States involvement in the Vietnam War began with demonstrations in 1964 against the escalating role of the U.S. military in the Vietnam War and grew into a broad social movement over the ensuing several years. This movement informed and helped shape the vigorous and polarizing debate, primarily in the United States, during the second half of the 1960's and early 1970's on how to end the war.
