Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt were in the White House during the two greatest crises of the 20th Century: the Great Depression and World War II. Their leadership, optimism, and courage shaped the culture and events that shaped what has been called the greatest generation. This session explores how the Roosevelts influenced the times in which they lived and steered the United States from the depths of the Great Depression to ultimate victory in the Second World War.
