While many important events occurred during Nixon's administration including the end of the Vietnam War, his visit to China, and putting a man on the moon, his time was marred by the Watergate Scandal. Faith in the office of the presidency declined with the revelations of this event and the way that the press dealt with the office changed forever from this time on. After Richard Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974, he retired to San Clemente, California. After his time in office, Nixon was pardoned by President Ford. Nixon also mediated a dispute between major league baseball and the umpire association in 1985.
