Teddy & Eleanor Roosevelt

“What We Are Fighting For” – A Presentation of Eleanor Roosevelt during World War II
Friday October 15 @ 07:30 PM, Saturday October 16, @ 07:30 AM

War is a controversial topic any day of the week. The stakes are higher if you have been working for world peace for over twenty years — ever since the end of the first World War, the “war to end all wars” — and your husband is the president of the United States while your country is embroiled in the largest war the planet has ever known. How does one stay true to one’s ideals in the midst of war’s mayhem? How can we build the world we want while surrounded by tumult? It is December 1942. Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt has just returned from England where she visited with soldiers, generals, royalty, and the working people. Find out how the First Lady feels about the individual’s role in a world torn by war, hardship, and uncertainty.

Both the Theodore Roosevelt program and the Eleanor Roosevelt program consists of a monologue in-character, followed first by a question and answer period with “Roosevelt” and then by a question and answer period with the scholar/presenter.
