Franklin D. Roosevelt

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” 
 

The Roosevelts: An Intimate History


The co-creators of such landmark PBS series and illustrated histories as The Civil War, Baseball, and Jazz, Ken Burns and Geoffrey Ward have now given us The Roosevelts, a remarkable portrait of America's most influential political family. Between them, Theodore and Franklin would occupy the White House for 19 of the first 45 years of the 20th century. And more so than the family name, it was Eleanor—Theodore's orphaned niece and Franklin's distant cousin, as well as his wife—who would unite the Roosevelt legacy and carry it on into the postwar era.
