1933
The nation was skittish in 1933. Revolution was in the air. Franklin Delano Roosevelt had won the presidency the year before with a New Deal for the common man, bringing hope to some while bedeviling others. Fear drove a group of powerful businessmen to plan a military coup to steer the nation out of the Great Depression.
