What are the best and worst decisions ever made by American presidents? Every president faces crises that involve American lives and vital national interests. Presidents seek to take bold and decisive action, and tough decisions get made in the White House that reverberate for generations.
Join history teacher Robert Galante for a real-time, "you-are-there " tour of presidential crises and decisions that changed the course of American society and the world. From George Washington through the present, presidents have grappled with domestic subversion, economic crashes, foreign threats, internal upheaval and much else, striving to contain the crisis while serving the best interests of a diverse society under the Constitution. It's a tall order and it requires citizenship from everyone! Join the discussion.
