  1. Whether these protests hurt or helped the U.S. depends upon your point of view.

    Some believe that the protests helped end the war sooner and united those who believed we shouldn't have been fighting in a nation's civil war.

    Others believe that the protesters were unAmerican and undermined the war effort and the deeds of the brave and patriotic troops.
