Once you read this FDR biography, you'll love this guy. FDR was one of the best things that ever happened to the United States and we'll put our money on the fact that you can't name four things he did to benifit our country. Don't worry, though. That's what we're here for. When you get done reading this, you'll carry a big stick and speak softly. Fun fact: That last sentence was a quote from him. See? We're already making progress.
Family Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the son of Sara Delano and James Roosevelt, a businessman. He married Eleanor Roosevelt and they had five children together.
Career Roosevelt was appointed assistant secretary of the Navy. After losing an election for vice president, he went back and practiced law for a while. Afterward Roosevelt was elected as the governer of New York. After his term, he started working toward a presidency.
Term, After Term, After Term, After Term FDR was elected for a whopping four terms. We really liked this guy. He helped pull us out of the depression, got us through World War II and was, frankly (pun intended?), a badass. In the first election, he ran with a lot more confidence than his opponent, Herbert Hoover. That confidence carried him on to all three of the rest of his elections as president.
Death Roosevelt witnessed and approved the development of the atomic bomb, but he wouldn't live to see it used. He also wouldn't live long enough to see World War II end. Roosevelt died while he was posing for a portrait. He slumped down in his chair and fell unconcious. He later died and was diagnosed with a cerebral hemmorage. The portrait he was posing for is still in existence and can be seen in Warm Springs, Georgia, where he went for a relaxation retreat pretty often.
