The Watergate Scandal: A Selective Timeline

This Sunday, June 17, 2012, will be the 40th anniversary of the bungled break-in of the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC. The ensuing cover-up, prosecutions, and more than two-year-long scandal resulted in the first (and so far only) resignation of an American president.

I put together the following video and uploaded it to both my YouTube and Vimeo accounts. The Vimeo account has the advantage of being ad-free (the YouTube ad inconveniently appears right over my captions, unless you manually close it). And if you go directly to the video on Vimeo, you can watch it in full-screen high definition.
