Hist 12: Tuesday, 15 May

Today I collected the NATO/Warsaw Pact treaty comparison questions - we'll review them tomorrow, so tonight is your last chance to get them done.  Next, we discussed McCarthyism through the Herb Block political cartoons.  It is important to recognize that the HUACommittee existed before the Cold War, but was in no way so influential as it was after McCarthy's involvement.  I always find it amazing that McCarthy felt so empowered that he would attack both Presidents (Truman and Ike).

I also issued a review package of the Cold War with a fill-in-the-blank format and a table to complete as a review of the events/revolts that were problems for the Soviets from 1946-1981.  Please have them all complete for tomorrow.
