The Best Of Our Knowledge #1241

Think about the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He took office in the depths of the great depression and guided the country through the last days of World War II.   But while FDR’s first hundred days may be the most celebrated period of his presidency, the 18 months before the attack on Pearl Harbor proved the most critical. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we'll celebrate Independence Day with a trip back to history class...and learn about the most important days of FDR.

We'll also spend an academic minute understanding history by using math.
