Abstract

Participants speak about the 1954 Army-McCarthy hearings. They comment on various audio excerpts from the hearings and respond to viewer comments and questions. The Army–McCarthy hearings were held by the United States Senate's Subcommittee on Investigations in April–June 1954 to investigate conflicting accusations between the United States Army and U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy. The Army accused Chief Committee Counsel Roy Cohn of pressuring the Army to give preferential treatment to G. David Schine, a former McCarthy aide and friend of Cohn's. McCarthy counter-charged that this accusation was made in bad faith and in retaliation for his recent aggressive investigations of suspected Communists and security risks in the Army.
