President In 1969 • Richard M. Nixon • Reconciliation was the first goal set by President Richard M. Nixon. The Nation was painfully divided, with turbulence in the cities and war overseas. During his Presidency, Nixon succeeded in ending American fighting in Viet Nam and improving relations with the U.S.S.R. and China. But the Watergate scandal brought fresh divisions to the country and ultimately led to his resignation.
Sports in 1969 Sports in the 60s is kind of like the sports we have now, except they are just more different and kind of easy to play. Bowling was different in the 60s. By the 1960s, diners and bowling alleys were moving from the city to the suburbs and while not as ubiquitous, they are still around today. The country's love of nostalgia has kept the classic roadside diner alive; however, the bowling alley of 50 years ago has morphed into a more hip, nightclub-like scene. • Car racing(NASCAR) • Baseball • Bowling • Horse racing • Soccer

Washington, D.C., and the Nixon administration's attempted cover-up of its involvement. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, the President of the United States, on August 9, 1974, the only resignation of a U.S. President. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction and incarceration of 43 people, including dozens of top Nixon administration officials. The affair began with the arrest of five men for breaking and entering into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate complex on June 17, 1972. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) connected cash found on the burglars to a slush fund used by the Committee for the Re-Election of the President, a fundraising group for the Nixon campaign
