WILSON by A. Scott Berg
One hundred years after his inauguration as the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. He is considered the leader of the Progressive Movement and he led his democratic party to win control of both the White House and Congress in 1912. Wilson induced a conservative Democratic Congress to pass a progressive legislative agenda, unparalleled until the 'New Deal' in 1933.
