The Fall of Communism

On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan delivered his iconic speech at the Berlin Wall where he challenged Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” President Reagan’s challenge would be realized two years later when the Berlin Wall fell. This event marked the fall of communism, and ushered in a new era of peace.
