The New Frontier Chapter 22, Section 1 What factors affected the election of 1960? What domestic programs did President Kennedy pursue? What circumstances surrounded Kennedys assassination?

Because of the close election,

Kennedy entered office without a mandate. Kennedy would provedhave to bedifficulty an engaging pushing television his more personality controversial during measures the 1960 presidential through Congress. debates, the first such debates to be televised. Kennedys Domestic Programs Chapter 22, Section 1 In a speech early in his presidency, Kennedy said that the nation was poised at the edge of a New Frontier. This phrase came to refer to Kennedys proposals to improve the economy, assist the

poor, and speed up the space program. Kennedys efforts to improve the economy included ordering a federal investigation into steel price fixing and proposing a large tax cut. His tax cut proposal, however, became stuck in Congress. Many of Kennedys proposals aimed to combat poverty and inequality. Although some were rejected by Congress, others were passed. These included an increase in the minimum wage, funding for urban renewal, abolishment of poll taxes, and the Equal Pay Act, which required all employees doing the same work in the same workplace to receive equal wages. Other Kennedy Initiatives Chapter 22, Section 1 Although Kennedy served a shortened presidency, he was able to initiate a variety of programs, including: Improved surplus food to unemployed Americans Largest defense buildup in peacetime history Help to communities plagued by long-term unemployment Extension of Social Security

benefits Expansion of National Park System Doubling of federal resources combating water pollution Construction of the worlds largest nuclear power plant Tightening of food and drug laws Encouragement of free trade Signing of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Changes in the welfare system Creation of first federal program to address juvenile delinquency The Space Program Chapter 22, Section 1 The Soviet Unions launch of the Sputnik satellite in 1957 inspired the United States to work toward placing a manned spacecraft in orbit. In April 1961, Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin became the first

human to travel in space. Americans worried that their technology was falling behind that of the Soviet Union. Funding for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was increased. In 1961 and 1962, American astronauts made initial space flights. On July 20, 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. Kennedy Is Assassinated Chapter 22, Section 1 On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was shot while riding in an open limousine through Dallas, Texas. He had traveled to Texas to mobilize support for his upcoming reelection campaign. Shots fired from the sixth-floor window of the empty Texas School Book Depository mortally wounded Kennedy, making Vice President Lyndon Johnson the new President. The prime suspect in Kennedys murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, was murdered by a man named Jack Ruby two days later, while being transferred from one jail to another.

To investigate Kennedys murder, President Johnson appointed The Presidents Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, better known as the Warren Commission, after its chairman, Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. The Warren Commission determined that Oswald had acted alone. However, theories that Oswald and Ruby had belonged to a conspiracy persisted. The New FrontierAssessment Chapter 22, Section 1 What was the New Frontier?

The Great Society Chapter 22, Section 2 What was Lyndon Johnsons path to the presidency? What were some of the goals and programs of the Great Society? What were some of the cases that made the Warren Court both important and controversial? LBJs Path to the White House Chapter 22, Section 2 Lyndon Johnson became President unexpectedly following Kennedys assassination. However, his political career had been leading up to this position for many years. While serving in the House and Senate, Johnson had established a reputation for both his political talent and his ambition. In 1954, he became Senate Majority Leader.

Kennedy had named Johnson his running mate in 1960 after Johnsons own bid for the Democratic nomination had failed. Johnson became President immediately after Kennedys death, taking the oath of office an hour and a half later. The Great Society and the Election of 1964 Chapter 22, Section 2 The Election Great Society of 1964 Johnson used his talent in working with Congress to initiateover many In the 1964 election, Johnson won a landslide victory reforms on domestic issues.

Johnsons programs included major poverty relief, education aid, A controversial TV advertisement known as the daisy healthcare, voting rights, conservation and beautification projects, commercial took advantage of Americans fear of nuclear urban renewal, and economic development in depressed areas. war to support Johnsons campaign. These programs became collectively known as the Great Society. Great Society Programs Chapter 22, Section 2 Great Society Reforms The Tax Cut Like Kennedy, Johnson believed that a budget deficit could be used to improve the economy. A tax cut caused the deficit to shrink, since renewed prosperity generated new tax revenues. The War on Poverty Johnson initiated new programs such as Head Start, a preschool program for low-income families that also provides healthcare, nutrition services and social services, and Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), which sent volunteers to help people in poor communities. Aid to Education The 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, also initiated by Johnson, provided billions of dollars in aid to public and private schools. Medicare and Medicaid Johnson helped Congress pass two new programs, Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare provides hospital and low-cost medical insurance to most Americans over age 65, while Medicaid provides similar services to poor Americans of any age who cannot afford their own private health insurance.

Immigration Reform The Immigration Act of 1965 replaced immigration quotas with overall limits from various parts of the world. Immigration rose during the 1960s and 1970s. The Warren Court Chapter 22, Section 2 During the Kennedy-Johnson years, the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren, handed down many controversial landmark verdicts. The Court ruled on social issues including in: 1957 Roth v. United States, ruling that obscene material were utterly without redeeming social importance. 1962 Engel v. Vitale, ruling that religious prayer in public schools was unconstitutional according to the First Amendment principle of separation of church and state. And in 1965 the Supreme Court struck down a Connecticut law that prohibited the use of birth. (Griswold v. Connecticut) The Warren Court was also interested in safeguarding the rights of persons accused of committing crimes. The Miranda rule, a result of the 1966 case Miranda v. Arizona, required police to inform accused persons of their rights. A series of Warren Court decisions changed the nature of apportionment,

or the distribution of the seats in a legislature among electoral districts.

Foreign Policy in the Early 1960s Chapter 22, Section 3 What were the goals of the Bay of Pigs invasion, and what was the outcome? What events led to the Berlin crisis and the Cuban Missile Crisis? What were the goals of the Alliance for Progress and the Peace Corps? Which Cold War conflicts did Johnson become involved in?

War continued. West Germany. The Cuban Missile Crisis Chapter 22, Section 3 On October 16, 1962, photographs taken from an American spy plane showed construction of Soviet missile bases in Cuba, about 90 miles from the coast of Florida. The American response to this construction, and the resulting Soviet response, became known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Cuban Missile Crisis brought the superpowers to the brink of nuclear war. After much consultation with his advisors, President Kennedy decided to authorize a naval quarantine around Cuba. He demanded that Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev cease construction of the missile bases. On October 25, Soviet ships headed for Cuba suddenly reversed direction, called back by Khrushchev. This action led to tremendous relief since confrontation, and the threat of nuclear war, had been avoided.

Results of the Cuban Missile Crisis Chapter 22, Section 3 The Cuban Missile Crisis did not end when Soviet ships reversed their course, however. The end of the crisis came several days later, when Kennedy responded to letters sent from Khrushchev, agreeing to some terms publicly and others in secret. In the end, the Soviet Union agreed to remove its missiles from Cuba. In return, the United States agreed to end the quarantine, stay out of Cuba, and remove missiles of its own from Turkey. As a result of the crisis, Kennedy and Khrushchev established a hot line with which they could communicate quickly in case of further crises. In addition, the United States and the Soviet Union, together with Great Britain, signed the Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963. This treaty banned nuclear testing above the ground. The Alliance for Progress Chapter 22, Section 3

Kennedy feared that Communist movements would attract support in poor nations by promising people a better future. To counter these movements, Kennedy encouraged people in the Western Hemisphere to join an Alliance for Progress. The Alliance would help build Western-allied stable governments that met the needs of their people. The United States pledged billions of dollars toward this goal. However, many people in Latin America began to view the Alliance as only a tool of the United States to stop the spread of communism. Because of these doubts, the Alliance for Progress was not as much of a success as Kennedy had hoped. The Peace Corps Chapter 22, Section 3 In 1961, Kennedy established the Peace Corps to further his goal of a world in which people worked together peacefully to solve problems. Peace Corps volunteers were Americans who agreed to work side by side with local citizens in poorer nations, teaching skills and improving living conditions. Today, Peace Corps volunteers continue to serve in nations around the world.
