The New Deal: Rebuilding America
"In 1932, the United States was on the brink of economic disaster. The Great Depression had left millions of Americans jobless and even homeless, with no end to their troubles and no hope in sight. But when presidential candidate Franklin Delano Roosevelt promised a ""new deal"" for America, hope replaced despair as people began to dream of a better life. As president, Roosevelt's ""three Rs"" programs created new jobs and reformed business practices. Full economic recovery was just over the horizon."
