The last United States troops left Vietnam on this day. A peace agreement had been signed in Paris in January, 1973, between the Viet Cong, North and South Vietnam, but fighting continued till the North Vietnamese Army captured Saigon in April, 1975. Some estimates state between 30,000 and 40,000 American war resisters, commonly called draft dodgers, came to Canada between 1971 and 1972. Many settled in Nova Scotia.
