The Vietnam War

Planning of a traveling exhibition, an exhibition publication, and related curriculum materials about the Vietnam War, considering both the home front and the war front.

The New-York Historical Society (N-YHS) respectfully requests a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities from the Museums, Libraries, and Cultural Organizations program to support research and development activities in preparation for a groundbreaking traveling exhibition on one of the most turbulent events of the twentieth century: the Vietnam War. This project will leverage our successful interdisciplinary approach in the development of a 5,000-square-foot exhibition that explores what happened both on the home front and warfront during the years of America’s deep involvement with Vietnam and why the war created such profound divisions in American society. Planning project activities will include research, scholar consultation, design development, research travel, and evaluation. The exhibition is currently scheduled to open in October 2016 and run for eight months, with a multi-year, multi-venue national tour to follow.
