What do you think happened here?
Truman was criticized for not using nuclear weapons and was voted out of office and lost to Eisenhower
-Cease fire (no more war) was agreed only after Eisenhower threatened to use nuclear weapons
-There are conflicting dates about the end of the Cold War, some believe it has never officially ended and so it has been the centre of much conspiracy etc (James Bond Movies etc)
The seaway opened in 1959 and was an example of economic cooperation between the US and Canada
After WW2, many of the soldiers overseas married European women – British, Dutch and Belgians
War brides came back with their husbands to Canada, they were the first real immigrants since no one really came during the depression or WW2
48000 war brides entered Canada
