The American movement against the Vietnam War was the most successful antiwar movementin U.S. history. During the Johnson administration, it played a significant role inconstraining the war and was a major factor in the administration's policy reversal in1968. During the Nixon years, it hastened U.S. troop withdrawals, continued to restrainthe war, fed the deterioration in U.S. troop morale and discipline (which providedadditional impetus to U.S. troop withdrawals), and promoted congressional legislation thatsevered U.S. funds for the war. The movement also fostered aspects of the Watergatescandal, which ultimately played a significant role in ending the war by underminingNixon's authority in Congress and thus his ability to continue the war. It gave rise tothe infamous "Huston Plan"; inspired Daniel Ellsberg, whose release of thePentagon Papers led to the formation of the Plumbers; and fed the Nixon administration'sparanoia about its political enemies, which played a major part in concocting theWatergate break-in itself.
