In this lesson, students will learn how a number of songs released during and after the Vietnam War articulated the experiences of Americans who served in the United States Armed Forces during the war. Students will analyze popular songs that have resonated with veterans, and many other Americans, since the time they were released. While analyzing the songs, students will examine newspaper editorials, first-hand accounts, and personal reflections from Vietnam veterans. Finally, students will watch clips from the CNN Soundtracks series to provide additional context and information to inform their discussion and activities.
