It ended with Israel occupying the Sinai Peninsula, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip and West Bank.

1968 - When she was 76 years old, on January 31st, the North Vietnamese launched the Tet Offensive, a turning point in the Vietnam War. 70,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces swarmed into South Vietnam.

1973 - In the year of Eleanore Johnston's passing, in October, Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned - President Nixon nominated Gerald Ford for Vice President.
