        Nixon's Address to the Nation Upon Re-election | The Day the '60s Died

        Hear Richard Nixon address the American people on the night of November 7, 1972 after winning re-election by one of the largest margins in United States political history. In this intimate setting, Nixon speaks directly to the Americans about his vision for a "new era of peace" after defeating Senator George McGovern, an anti-war Democrate. Two years later he would resign in the wake of the Watergate scandal.

        Footage from this speech was used in the documentary The Day the 60's Died, which chronicles the Kent State shootings and the events and circumstances surrounding it. Additional resources from this documentary can be found here.
