"Ronald Reagan and Executive Power," a supplemental lesson commemorating the centennial of Ronald Reagan's birth, was made possible by a grant from The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation.

Images were provided by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum, the Department of Defense, and Getty Images.

The lesson was authored by Lauri McNown, who teaches in the Department of Political Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
