In GCSE History students will look at the History of the USA between 1840 and 1975. The last section of this topic covers the 30 years from 1945 until 1975. This is the second of four quizzes on this era and it looks in particular at society and freedom in 1960s and 1970s America.

By 1980 another period of Republican government of the USA was looming.
