In this installment of To The Republic, Jake and Geoff examine the responses of five former US Presidents to particular national crisis that occurred during their time in power. Specifically we look at the Presidents George Washington’s response to the Whisky Rebellion; James Buchanan’s response to state secession and the issue of slavery ; Herbert Hoover’s response to the stock market crash and banking crisis in 1929; Franklin Roosevelt’s response to the Dust Bowl; and George W. Bush’s response to the September 11th Terror Attacks. Enjoy!
