So What’s
1. President Eisenhower received credit for checking Communist aggression and
keeping the peace without the loss of American lives in combat, and for creating the
first arms limitations by voluntarily suspending above-ground testing of nuclear
weapons in 1958.
2. The Civil Rights movement began because the United States needed to be an

movement was lead by Jackie Robinson when he broke the color barrier in baseball,
and Rosa Parks.
