Course Description

ONLINE: Who is really in charge of our nation? On the 50th anniversary of the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon, perhaps it's time to admit that many people were duped. The events that began with the break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters in the Watergate complex may seem familiar. But much of what we think we know is wrong. Following the scholarship of Jim Hougan and other researchers, we will discover what really happened during the time leading up to the alleged “burglary” and the events that followed, climaxing with Nixon’s flight from the White House. This lecture-based course will use many historical images along with class discussion to expose the real President Nixon — both his good traits and his worst. Class participants will be surprised to discover what actually occurred prior to and during the break-ins by the so-called "plumbers." We will see that it was actually a coup that removed Nixon from office. | Lecture + Q&A.
