Actor, Governor, President, Ronald Reagan was all these and more. To his admirers he won the cold war, to his detractors he abandoned the poor. But one thing is certain, Ronald Reagan will not be a footnote in history. With his passing the debate on the legacy of the United States' 40th president has been revitalized. Historians, separated from the emotions of the moment and with hindsight as their guide are painting a canvas of the man and his policies using a palette of opinions and events that give Ronald Reagan's tenure as president both dimension and fluidity. As time puts more distance between Ronald Reagan's years in the White House we get a clearer picture of the man and his times. We see events and actions not as participants but as students. Everyone leaves a legacy, but what that legacy is depends as much on our own acts and convictions as others' opinions of those acts and convictions.. This case study will explore the legacy of Ronald Wilson Reagan and how each of us would want to shape our own legacy.
