Eisenhower and the 1950s:

Eisenhower and the 1950s America’s Cold War Heats Up

Korean War:

Korean War The Korean War was one of ebb and flow, advances and retreats--the movement of troops up and down the rugged Korean peninsula. Here, American troops advance while Korean women and children march in the opposite direction hoping to avoid the destruction of war. Over 33,000 Americans lost their lives in Korea during the conflict. (Corbis-Bettmann) Korean War Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.

Nixon and Eisenhower at the 1952 Republican Convention :

Seen as a statesman and not a politician during the campaign, Eisenhower worked hard to ensure his nomination over Robert Taft, and then chose Richard Nixon to balance the ticket because he was a younger man, a westerner, and a conservative.

Eisenhower happy:

Eisenhower happy Like a benign grandfather, Dwight D. Eisenhower provided a reassuring presence in the White House in the 1950s. His moderation, balanced judgment, and apparent aloofness from partisanship appealed to as many as did his fondness for bridge and poker, bourbon, fishing and hunting, and golf. (Courtesy Dwight D.

McCarthyism, "I have here in my hand..."

Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott:

Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott A member of the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP since 1943, and the organization's secretary, Rosa Parks had protested segregation by refusing to drink from fountains labeled "Colored Only" and by climbing stairs rather than using segregated elevators. Her act of protest against bus segregation inspired a whole black community to join her cause and sparked the massive nonviolent civil disobedience phase of the struggle against white supremacy.
