        A Young Franklin Delano Roosevelt | Ken Burns: The Roosevelts

        View images of the young Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), his mother, Sara, his young wife Eleanor, and various family members. FDR was the 32nd President of the United States. He was born into an old, wealthy, New York family that traced its roots to the Revolutionary War. Roosevelt’s childhood was privileged and pampered. He was educated in the finest schools, had traveled broadly and frequently throughout Europe by the time he was 15. In spite of his privileged life, Roosevelt was a champion of working Americans. Roosevelt’s family would touch the lives of more Americans than any other family.
