Overview

This four-part series chronicles the life and political career of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This first episode looks at the early life of FDR. Born into a wealthy family, there was little about his youth that would suggest the giant of history that he would become. His entry into state politics and a significant meeting with a woman named Eleanor would change his life and the course of a nation. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
