Remembering Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Remembering Franklin D. Roosevelt” an informative lecture at the Bridgewater Public Library
Presented by Historian and Professor Gary Hylander on October 27th
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the death of Franklin Roosevelt, a president whom many historians celebrate as the greatest president of the twentieth century.

Join us as we discuss how FDR's New Deal Programs worked to relieve the unemployment crisis of the Great Depression and in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor,

to fight and win a war in both Europe and Asia. No matter how grave the situation appeared, a confident FDR assured the nation that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

Hylander is currently an independent scholar who specializes as a presidential historian, a pedagogical specialist for the National Endowment for the Humanities and professor of history.

The event, which is funded by the Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library, begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.
