1968: Domestic Chaos Against the Backdrop of an Unpopular War Through 1968, racial unrest, intergenerational strife, and a rising crime rate, were each exacerbated by the growing unpopularity of the war in Vietnam. After the TET offensive in January, Lyndon Johnson announces in March that he won't seek re-election as President. In April, Martin Luther King is assassinated in Memphis; in June, Rober F. Kennedy, the front runner for the Democratic nomination, is murdered. As Hubert Humphrey is nominated at the chaotic Democratic convention in Chicago, Richard Nixon emerges as the Republican nominee with a "Southern Strategy" and an appeal to the Silent Majority.
