Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Birth: Jan. 30, 1882
Hyde Park
Dutchess County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 12, 1945
Warm Springs
Meriwether County
Georgia, USA

32nd US President. Cousin of Theodore Roosevelt, he graduated from Harvard and earned a law degree at Columbia University. He later became a democratic Senator for the state of New York. He was elected Governor of New York twice, 1928 and 1930. Elected president in 1932, he is the only president to have served more than 2 terms (he served for 12 years, until his untimely death in 1945, just before the end of WWII). A geopolitical genius, Roosevelt laid the groundwork for American dominance in the post-war world. FDR steadily guided the country through the Great Depression and the war. He was succeeded by Harry S. Truman, whom he selected as vice-president largely to garner votes from the agricultural Midwest.

President Roosevelt, it is a privilege to be your 6th cousin. Your life was nothing short of impactful, brought this nation out of the Great Depression, and drove this country to victory during WWII. God hold you in the hollow of His loving arms

RIP Mr. President. For as long as I can remember, your picture has hung in my parents home. They named one of their sons after you in 1946. Our baby died at 13 days old.
