- Billy Sunday - 1,171 words
Billy Sunday Billy Sunday For almost a quarter century Billy Sunday was a household name in the United States.

- Tet Offensive: A Major Turning Point - 1,381 words
Tet Offensive: A Major Turning Point Tet Offensive: A Major Turning Point Villagers carried coffins filled with guns and ammunition through towns, accompanying them were the sounds of fireworks and flutes. Those sounds soon turned to the sound of assault rifle fire and explosions.

This major event in the Vietnam War is called the Tet Offensive. After a surprise attack in the beginning, the United States and South Vietnamese army came back to overpower the Vietcong and NVA (North Vietnamese Army) and decisively win all the battles. ...
