First Hundred Days
   The first three months of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal from 9 March to 16 June 1933, known subsequently as the “First Hundred Days,” began with Congress being called into emergency session and ended with an unprecedented 15 major pieces of new legislation being passed to tackle the problems of the Great Depression. The “First Hundred Days” was a defining moment in the New Deal that set a benchmark of achievement against which all subsequent presidencies were to be judged.
