Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States, held that title longer than any man in history and dealt, during his time, with some of the greatest problems internal or external, which had faced the nation.

The internal crisis which existed at the time of his first inauguration, on March 4, 1933, when the nation’s economic system was faltering and its financial organism paralyzed by fear, was followed in his third term by the global war during which he and Winston Churchill emerged as leaders of the English-speaking world.

The years in between were packed with swift and drastic social and economic changes to make Mr. Roosevelt the most controversial figure in American history. Beloved by millions, hated, admired, feared and scorned by countless adversaries, he did much to shape the future of the nation he headed and the world.

As the young New York State senator who won national acclaim before he was 30; as the assistant secretary of the Navy before and during U.S. participation in the First World War; as the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for vice president in 1920 and as the governor of New York for two terms beginning in 1928, he had acheived unusual honors even before his presidency.

He died from a cerebral hemorrhage in Warm Springs, Ga. in 1945 during his fourth term as president. He was 63. Adapted from “Roosevelt Regime, From ’33, Longest in Nation’s History,” April 13, 1945

    Going to school and getting and education is something that many teenagers today take for granted. We complain about doing class work and barely want to take the time to study at home. School would probably be much more important to teenagers if they were not able to get an education. If you can imagine a time when school was only allowed for the privileged or very wealthy, then you can understand what it was like for many teenagers and children during the Victorian Era. The Victorian era was…
