Overseas, Americans fight in Korea and Vietnam, while at home, African-Americans take to the streets and the courts to demand their civil rights. Take a new look as Harry Truman and Joe McCarthy, LBJ and JFK, Ike and Thurgood Marshall, Elvis Presley and Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Malcolm X, Cesar Chavez and Ronald Reagan-and two guys named Bill (Clinton and Gates).
