How did Lyndon B. Johnson's advisory committee change as the Vietnam war progressed?
From a general stance, his advisers slowly began to withdraw their support after escalation in Vietnam was becoming LBJ's ultimate goal. Some desired peaceful resolution through meetings and treaties, while others who previously backed the idea of escalation saw the public backlash it was causing, and became hesitant to agree. Plagued with the promise to uphold Kennedy's foreign policies, LBJ felt escalation was the only answer if victory was to be achieved. Many advisers spoke publicly about their displeasure with Johnson's apparent lack of consideration for his advisory committee's suggestions, while others took the silent route.

How does the representation of monsters on medieval maps and manuscripts help to explain/display the societal attitudes towards outside and/or unknown people and places?
Monsters, as represented on medieval maps and manuscripts, often share a good amount of insight into the views such cultures held about those outside their realm of knowledge. For example, in several manuscripts, people from Ethiopia are depicted as monstrous beasts often with enormous ears, or pig-like faces. Such opinions were formed from the lack of exploration and knowledge of these outside worlds, and were often generated from stories spread with no factual backing.
