Texas and Texans During the Vietnam War Years


This Vietnam War film sampler was inspired by the collection of Austinite Marcellus Hartman, who captured hundreds of films of soldiers and Vietnamese civilians around the Camp Evans military base, while he served as a military records clerk. Hartman’s amateur films provides a moving image history of the first “television war” different of that found in Hollywood features and documentaries. This curated collection also includes newsreels of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, interviews with veterans, and home movies created in Texas during the late 1960s and early 1970s, which provide a glimpse of life in Texas during the war.
