US History - Franklin D. Roosevelt

The 32nd President of the U.S. was Franklin D. Roosevelt who was consistently regarded by scholars as the top three U.S. Presidents. He was the only president to serve three terms, after which an amendment was drafted to officially declare the two-term limit. During his time as president, FDR juggled with a great depression and a world war. Over the course of his presidency he drafted many projects which re-stimulated the economy and reduced unemployment from 20% to as low as 2%. By the end of his term his administration had yet to find a solution to the economic disaster. He was born on January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park, New York and died on April 12, 1945.
