Franklin D. Roosevelt Inauguration

Docs & Non-Fiction (Politics)
[ 1:43 - from YouTube ]

Franklin Roosevelt’s 1933 Inaugural Address is one of the most famous in American history – not because it was unusually eloquent, although it was better than most, but because it was such a powerful statement of command in a moment of great crisis. Some skeptical listeners thought it hinted at a kind of dictatorship, but most Americans were comforted by the promise of “action, and action now.”
