39 years ago today – Nixon resigns

Today in 1974, Richard Nixon announced on national television his resignation from office following the Watergate scandal.

The next day he would step aboard a helicopter in the grounds of the White House, and leave for San Clemente, California – never to return.

His successor, Gerald Ford, stated that he hoped Nixon would find peace.

It seems he did. In fact, it appears that Nixon was eventually even able to laugh at himself, as this souvenir copy of his resignation, personally signed by the former president, demonstrates.
