January 22, 1973: The Day That Changed America

From a Washington Post Retropolis story by James D. Robenalt headlined “January 22, 1973: The day that changed America”:

It was a day unlike any other in U.S. history. Jan. 22, 1973, was the day Henry Kissinger flew to Paris to end the Vietnam War for the United States. It was the day the Supreme Court issued its opinion on abortion rights in Roe v. Wade. And it was the day the nation’s 36th president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, died of a heart attack in Texas at 64.
