#: CBEP   ID: 9154   Section: 021820-2  
Description:
From 1939 through World War II Franklin Roosevelt dealt with Great Britain’s two most powerful men:  King George VI and Winston Churchill.  A June, 1939 trip to the United States by England’s King and Queen was more than a mere social visit it was an important political maneuver.  Learn how a simple hot dog played a role in world diplomacy.  Prime Minister Churchill was a bulldog tugging at FDR’s leg trying to drag our country into the war.  Once we were at war the Churchill-Roosevelt partnership was close and sometimes continuous.  Learn about their relationship.  Q & A will follow the presentation.
