  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt remains the only president of the United States to be elected into office more than twice, winning four Electoral College votes, serving as president from 1933-1945.

 

  • Roosevelt gained the presidency at the height of the "Great Depression" and restored the American people's faith in themselves. He brought hope and promised prompt & vigorous action, remarking in his Inaugural Address, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself".
