THE ROOSEVELT PRESIDENCY

The New Deal

1933 FDR takes the oath of office on March 4, and during his first 100 Days, he gets a significant number of Legislative programs through Congress. His programs became known as "alphabet agencies" such as the Agricultural Adjustment Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps both of which focused on economic relief recovery and reform.

1935 FDR succeeds in creating the Works Progress Administration and Social Security as well as other programs.

1936 He is re-elected president to a second term

World War II

1939 Germany invades Poland, an act that escalates to World War II. While keeping a neutral position for the U.S., Roosevelt seeks ways to provide American aid to the Allied powers

1940 Roosevelt wins election for an "unprecedented" third term

1941 FDR signs the Lend-Lease bill, thus aiding nations at war with Germany and Italy. On December 7, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, and the United States enters into World War II. The next day, December 8, Roosevelt delivers his famous "day of infamy" speech before Congress and seeks from Congress a formal declaration of war against Germany.

1942 FDR envisions and moves to create a grand alliance of Allied powers through the Declaration of the United Nations.

1944 Roosevelt is re-elected president for a fourth term, making FDR the longest serving president in U.S. history

1945 On April 12, President Roosevelt passes away at Warm Springs, Georgia and is buried in the Rose Garden of his Hyde Park estate in New York.
