1987: Reagan speaks at Brandenburg Gate

On June 12, 1987, President Reagan gave a rousing speech to a crowd of 20,000 at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. There, he uttered one of the most famous lines of his presidency: "Tear down this wall.” The phrase was part of a broader call to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to destroy the Berlin Wall that divided East and West Germany. This photo from the White House Photographic Collection shows the president speaking to the crowd.
