Default when did vietnam split into communist north and captialist south?

I'm confused. I can't find when it was split. it was a french colony until france gave up control following their capitulation in 1940. then it looks like by 1949, it was split.

when did it happen and why?

The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (Vietnamese Vi?t Nam Dn Ch? C?ng Ha), also known as North Vietnam was created by the partition of Vietnam in 1954 after the defeat of France at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu. The Viet Minh took control of North Vietnam on October 11, 1954.
hope that helps

hmm that's what I thought but then I read this:
"1949 Bao Dai and President Vincent Auriol of France sign the Elysee Agreement. As part of the agreement the French pledge to assist in the building of a national anti-Communist army."

hmmm...maybe you're right it doesn't connect....I just assumed that if the vietnamese emperor wanted to stop communism in his country, that means there's a division. I guess it wasn't technically divided into two coutries at that point, but 1949 was the beginning of the vietminh

Hmmm, the French got defeated. The 20th century wasn't too kind to them.

And neither was the 19th century...
and neither was the 18th century...
and neither was the 17th century...

Hmm, I think there is a pattern here.

hm, I know that Ho Chi Minh used the Vietminh to defeat the French in Diem Bien Phu.. the U.S. was sending France aid.. I know that France appointed Diem as the South Vietnamese President, elections were supposed to be held in 1956 but were cancelled by Diem, who had a corrupt government. During the 60s, the United States started sending in troops to help Diem and the South defeat the spread of Communism from the North and Ho Chi Minh, then that was where the Vietnam War started pretty much.
