During the Vietnam War, Americans and Missourians used newspapers as a source for news and information about the conflict in Vietnam. Readers followed news stories about the escalated involvement of the United States, the Tet Offensive, anti-war movements around the country, the Paris Peace Accords, and the capture of Saigon. Missouri newspapers included national news reports, which were accompanied by local reports of wounded. Editorial articles in local newspapers captured local opinions and attitudes towards the war. Other newspaper content included firsthand experiences recounted by journalists and soldiers in Vietnam.
