"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

Reagan made it his mission to bring down the Soviet Union. He believed it was necessary for a free world and peace. The Russians made the mistake of underestimating his resolve. Then, in 1987, he took the fight to them in their own backyard and threw down the gauntlet with his "Tear Down this Wall" speech. Ultimately, the Soviet Union fell and Reagan accomplished his mission. You can revisit the speech by clicking here.
