1882: Franklin D. Roosevelt, who became the 32nd president of the United States in 1933, is born in Hyde Park, N.Y. Roosevelt would lead the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and total war, becoming the only American president ever elected to more than two terms. He was re-elected to a fourth term in 1944, but died from a stroke on April 12, 1945, less than three months into his final term.
