Understanding References

Here are some terms I had to look up in order to learn or refresh my memory on what exactly people are talking about in some of these news articles (I mean, I knew the New Deal was put forth by FDR during the Great Depression, and that it was immediately helpful to a lot of people who were struggling-- but what exactly was it?):

The Beltway

The New Deal

Johnson's Great Society

The Panic of 1907

History, history, history. It's so important.

(Yes, I know. They are all Wikipedia articles. Lazy woman, shame. But I have to go balance my checkbook, make breakfast and start the kids on schoolwork. I don't have time to search more than one site right now.)
