"New Deal? What is that?" I am always surprised by that, but it happens more than one might think. I guess in part due to my age, and living with my parents and grandparents talk about the Great Depression, it seems shocking to me that people might not know. Many of the benefits of the New Deal projects Administration are still in use today. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal Administration--like the Works Progress Administration--I used the terms most recognized by people. I explained the former use of the building--she knew that--and pointed out the cornerstone that documented it had been one of the projects--she did not know that.
people's history have been surgically removed from textbooks--I am beginning to wonder if that now includes the history of the New Deal Administration, and the benefits--economic, social, and psychological--that it provided to a country in desperate need.
