In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.
The first is freedom of speech and expression—everywhere in the world.
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way—everywhere in the world.
The third is freedom from want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.
The fourth is freedom from fear—which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor—anywhere in the world.
On January 5, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered his Annual Message to Congress where he first proposed the securing of “four freedoms” as the goal for U.S. policy.

As you might imagine, I am interested in hearing about the various forms of metadata involved for making these new features possible. I am pleased to report that there are various forms of metadata used to create these tools, some of them are:
All of these standards come together to form a unique set of API features that make Chronicling America a truly unique resource for primary resources!
This is just a technical discussion, but please explore the website and discover more!
