35 Years Ago- Nixon Quits

Did you know it was thirty-five years ago that President Nixon resigned from the office of President? On August 9, 1974 it became effective at noon as Nixon was under threat of impeachment as a result of the Watergate scandal. We have the classic breaking news book and movie “All the President’s Men” that unearthed the scandal. Now we know that Bob Woodward’s legendary anonymous source (Deep Throat) was, Mark Felt. He wrote “A G-Man life” and Bob Woodward wrote “The Secret Man” the story of deep throat, and Mark Felt wrote “A G-Man’s Life”. Both books are available to checkout.
