On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan gives his famous “tear down this wall” speech near the Berlin Wall in West Germany. In the speech, Reagan urged Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the wall dividing Berlin. The wall was build in 1961 as a way to keep East German citizens from escaping to the West.
