U.S. & World Events of the Super70s

By Patrick Mondout

Some of the most memorable news stories are from the Super70s: Abduction and capture of Patty Hearst, Anti-War Violence at Kent State and the end of the Vietnam War, Watergate and the resignations of Spiro Agnew and Richard Nixon, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, the OPEC oil crisis, and the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. And don't miss our our list of terrorist acts or our special section on the Symbionese Liberation Army.

The Super70s kept us amused by the secret visit by Elvis to meet Richard Nixon in the White House and bewildered with bizarre stories like the shooting of skier Spider Sabich by Claudine Longet. It also saw the reinstatement of the death penalty with the execution of Gary Gilmore and the worst aviation accident of all time.

We will cover it all right here! If you just want to browse through the major events of the decade, checkout our timelines, starting with 1970.
