Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, died today at his home in California. He was 93 years old and had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Reagan, known as “The Great Communicator,” was elected to office in a landslide victory over incumbent Democrat Jimmy Carter in 1980 and is credited with revitalizing the country’s stagnant economy and forcing the end of the Cold War during his two terms in office from 1981 to 1989.
