Viet Nam War Ends

Viet Nam War Ends as Saigon Falls

By 1969, the Vietnam War seemed endless to Americans, and the United States slowly began to withdraw troops. In January 1973, a cease-fire was arranged and the last U.S. ground troops left Vietnam two months later.

The Viet Nam War finally ended on April 30, 1975 when South Vietnam surrendered to North Vietnam.
