Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd president of the United States who served from 1933 until his death in 1945. In the 1932 election, Roosevelt was able to be elected the first Democratic president since Woodrow Wilson. He was the fifth cousin of Theodore Roosevelt. He campaigned his New Deal policies, which expanded the federal government in order to ease the depression. While it didn't help as much, he was still re-elected in the 1936 election. In 1939, a man by the name of Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Germany, had invaded Poland and in 1940 invaded France. Another World War was brewing in Europe, and because of it and in order to help Great Britain, America began more war production which gradually took the United States out of the depression. Roosevelt obviously did not want to run for a third term in the 1940 election, but he was eventually convinced and he ended up winning, becoming the first and only president to serve more than two terms. In 1941, Japan bombed the United States, which caused America to join World War Two. In the 1944 election, Roosevelt once again ran and won and by that point, the allies and America were close to defeating Germany and Japan. However, Roosevelt would die of polio before he could see the end of the war.
Roosevelt was born on January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park, New York.
Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945 in Warm Springs, Georgia.
