Today in history: September 2, 1969 - Hồ Chí Minh dies. 
Hồ Chí Minh was a Vietnamese communist revolutionary leader who was prime minister (1945–1955) and president (1945–1969) of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam). He was a key figure in the foundation of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945, as well as the People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN) and the Việt Cộng during the Vietnam War. He led the independence movement from 1941 onward, establishing the communist-led Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945 and defeating the French in 1954 at the battle of Điện Biên Phủ. After the Vietnamese drove the U.S. out of Vietnam and united Vietnam as a socialist country, Saigon, the former capital of the Republic of Vietnam, was renamed Hồ Chí Minh City.
