A newspaper by the New York Times on the cease-fire in Vietnam. I'm inferring that this resolution was a great moment for the people of that time to hear of the cease-fire. How did this news first get out, and how did political leaders feel about the news?

The Paris Peace Accords ending the Vietnam conflict were signed January 27, 1973, and were followed by the withdrawal of the remaining American troops. The terms of the accords called for a complete ceasefire in South Vietnam, allowed North Vietnamese forces to retain the territory they had captured, released US prisoners of war, and called for both sides to find a political solution to the conflict. As an enticement to Thieu, Nixon offered US airpower to enforce the peace terms.
