Hoover Dam with usa’s flag

The name of the 31st president Herbert Hoover was used for gaining political mileage in his favor. The construction was done between 1931 and 1936 and was dedicated on September 30, 1935. The project was authorized by Congress in the year 1928, and was the first of its kind. The torrid summer weather and the lack of facilities in the vicinity, along with some of the proposed, but unproven techniques of the construction, added up to the hurdles of the project.
