This curriculum unit explores anticommunism in America following World War II.  The three lessons focus on the following topics: Soviet Espionage in America, The House Un-American Activities Committee, and the Rise and Fall of Joseph McCarthy.  Students will study this turbulent period of American history, examining the various events and ideas that defined it, and considering how much of the anticommunist sentiment of the era was justified, and how much was an overreaction.
