The 1960's - years of chaos and change

The 1960's were years of great change: Protests (Vietnam War, Free Speech, Civil Rights), assassinations (JFK, Martin Luther King Jr, Bobby Kennedy), conflict (the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, Vietnam) and technological strides (color tv and a man on the moon!). Rock and roll came into its own. Fashion went from long skirts to high hems and necklines plunged. Hippies replaced the Beatniks. Long hair on men appeared. And yet family life was much the same.
