Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III returns for a conversation with President Woodrow Wilson, as portrayed by Judd Bankert, a Wilson re-enactor from Staunton, Va., at the National World War I Museum.
Wilson instituted several regulatory reforms—creating the Federal Reserve Bank and the Federal Trade Commission—as well as the first progressive income tax system before leading the country through World War I during his second term in office.
This event is co-sponsored by the National World War I Museum and the Woodrow Wilson Museum in Staunton, Virginia.
