Lincoln ended slavery and held the Union together. Teddy Roosevelt brought the working man a “Square Deal.” He said, “When I say square deal I don’t mean everyone gets the winning hand. I do mean everyone gets dealt in.” On the way he brought us the F.D.A., our national park system, the Panama Canal, not to mention announcing to the world we were a great power, and he broke up some mighty mean monopolies. Franklin Roosevelt saved us from the “Great Depression” and led us through World War II; along the way we got Social Security, unemployment protections, the 40-hour work week, child labor protections, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the FDIC., the G.I. Bill, the Pentagon, the United Nations, minimum wage laws, and more.
