1941: Nine months before the United States would enter World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the Lend-Lease Act into law, allowing American-built war supplies to be shipped to the Allies on loan. Formally titled An Act to Further Promote the Defense of the United States, the act effectively ended the United States' pretense of neutrality in the war.
