From 1931 to 1939, America’s Southern and Midwestern regions were struck with the worst drought in recent history. This only deepened the Depression, and it was a constant struggle for new President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to try and combat mother nature through his New Deal projects. This timeline tells that story.
