This chapter demonstrates how midshipmen reacted to both administrative attempts to tighten control over their lives and to national and international events and trends. It begins by examining the first steps made by the classes of 1951, 1952, and 1953 in creating an Honor Concept and dealing with honor violations. The chapter then discusses the relative quiet and subdued pranks in the 1950s and the 1960s, and how this period gave way to an era of remarkable midshipmen activity at Annapolis. These activities include challenging the Academy's mandatory chapel policy, staging a sit-in on the superintendent's lawn in the fall of 1968, and the creation of an action group to provide community service to Annapolis.
