    What are the 10 ways that the 1960s was one of the most burgeoning and turbulent decades in America?

    The 1960s was the end of the innocence of the 1950s. America was starting to become what it has stated in the Constitution.  Blacks, women, Hispanics, and other marginalized people were asserted their place in America.  There was VietNam and riots in the inner cities. There were assassinations of three great leaders, John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King.  America was never going to be the same EVER again!

    The 10 events that defined the 1960s America are as follows:

    1. The Cuban Missile Crisis and nuclear brinkmanship, the most dangerous time
    2. Assassination of JFK
    3. Assassination of Robert Kennedy
    4. Assassination of Martin Luther King after "I have a dream" speech
    5. Passing of the Voters' Rights Amendment
    6. Beginning of the gay rights movement in Stonewall
    7. Landing on the moon
    8. Escalation in Vietnam with massive troop buildup
    9. The British invasion via the Beatles
    10. Nikita Kruschev's speech in the UN "We will bury capitalism!"

    There is an eleventh one that shaped US foreign policy and that was the 7 day Yom Kipur war in Israel that defeated the Egyptians. The decade was an intense roller coaster ride, the beginning of which many thought we would not live through. It ended with the landing on the moon, which many contest to this day as to whether it was true or a psy-op to out propaganda the USSR. This was the decade that marks a sharp increase in US imperialist designs and actions.

      The Yom Kippur War was in 1973, you meant the Six Day War in 1967.
