      January 27th, 1973, officials from the United States and North Vietnam signed a treaty at the Majestic Hotel in Paris, formally ending U.S. participation in Vietnam, a war that had created a deep political division in American society. Fuelled by a dozen years of U.S. involvement in this Cold War conflict.

      The adversaries first entered into peace negotiations in 1968. In that tumultuous year, Republican Richard Nixon wrested the presidency from the Democrats, Something that played a large part in peace talks.

      Four years later, after the death of thousands of U.S. service members, South Vietnamese and North Vietnamese soldiers and Viet Cong warfighters, hopes rose that the struggle over power in Vietnam had finally come to a close.
