32nd President of the United States
Franklin D. Roosevelt - 32nd President of the United States
Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin at the Yalta Conference in 1945, By: USA C-543
The single greatest legislative accomplishment in the second half of the twentieth century came on July 30, 1965, the date President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Social Security Amendments that created Medicare and Medicaid.
Hyperbole is so often used when we discuss the impact that this President or that President had on America, but that just isn't the case for the 26th President of the United States. Theodore Roosevelt was catapulted into the Executive Office after the assassination of William McKinley in September of 1901.
July 30, 1965 is a day that will go down as one of America's greatest days. After a truly bipartisan vote in both the House of Representatives and the US Senate, an amendment to the Social Security Act setting up our nations first public health insurance program passed and was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Fredrick Douglass is one of the greatest people in American history. Douglass started life as a slave and would eventually meet multiple presidents and even be the first African-American to be nominated for the Vice-Presidency (even though he didn't seek nor acknowledge the nomination). Douglass fought against the injustice of slavery for his entire life.
