A comprehensive look into the pivotal years of Ronald Reagan's presidency.

Following a week of mourning in which tens of thousands of admirers paid their respects, former president Ronald Reagan was laid to rest in June 2004. Credited by former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher with having "won the cold war," Reagan is best known for his supply-side economics and fiscal policy (dubbed Reaganomics), the Reagan Revolution, and his summits with Mikhail Gorbachev. A beloved president, Reagan left office as the nation was experiencing an unprecedented period of peacetime prosperity.
