President Truman`s Train Stop
Backstory and Context
During his second term as President, Truman faced struggles in the aftermath of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. His attempts for social policy reform were largely blocked by Republicans in Congress and his administration often questioned those who supported McCarthyism in the 1940s. In 1952, Truman announced he would not be running for another term as President and retired to his home in Missouri.
