Held on January 20th 1973, the second inauguration of Richard Nixon marked the commencement of the second term of Richard Nixon as President and the second term of Spiro Agnew as Vice President. Nixon resigned one year and twenty days into the term and was succeeded by Gerald Ford who had previously succeeded Spiro Agnew as Vice President 263 days into Spiro's term and following his resignation. While Nixon's premature departure from office often dominates assessments of his presidency, his legacy has undergone reevaluation in the more than 40 years since his resignation. Political historian and pollster Douglas Schoen has argued that Nixon was the most important American figure in post-war U.S. politics for his important domestic and foreign policy accomplishments including the foundation of the EPA in 1970, ending the United States Military draft in 1973, and signing the Paris Peace Accords that same year, ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
