The Roosevelts: Life and Legacy of Franklin and Eleanor (#16009)

Examine the ideals and achievements of American history’s foremost “power couple” of the 20th century, as well as influences of the area they called home. The only U.S. president elected to more than two terms, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the architect of the nation we know today, implementing extraordinary transformations of American government, economy, and culture. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of these two great Americans and their remarkable lives during presentations and field trips to the FDR Presidential Library and Museum; the Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill; their beloved Hudson Valley home, Springwood; and FDR’s private retreat, Top Cottage. A cruise on the beautiful Hudson River is a special highlight.
