In an evening televised address, President Richard M. Nixon announces
his intention to become the first president in American history to resign.

With impeachment proceedings underway against him for his involvement
in the
Watergate affair, Nixon was finally bowing to pressure from the public
and Congress to leave the
White House. 

“By taking this action,” he said in a solemn address from the Oval Office,
“I hope that I will have hastened the start of the process of healing which
is so desperately needed in America.”

Just before noon the next day, Nixon officially ended his term as the 37th
president of the United States.
