Historian Dr. Gary Hylander - Vietnam and the Tet Offensive
Thursday February 15, 2018
We are happy to welcome back historian Dr. Gary Hylander! Tonight at 7:00 PM Dr. Hylander will share his knowledge and insights about Vietnam and the Tet Offensive. This is the 50th anniversary of the major offensive launched by the North Vietnamese and communist Viet Cong forces during Tet, the lunar New Year. The United States and South Vietnames forces sustained heavy losses before repelling the assault. The Tet Offensive played a pivotal role in weakening public support in the United States for the Vietnam War. Registration is not necessary for this program; up to 60 people will be accommodated on first-to-arrive basis. Dr. Hylander's lecture is funded by State Aid to Public Libraries.
