Roosevelt died as a result of a cerebral hemorrhage during a trip to Warm Springs, Georgia.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand discuss a man who saved the United States during times of great despair, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The President, after years of declining health, died on this day in 1945 while still in office. Vice President Harry Truman became the President upon Roosevelt’s death, bringing an end to the longest presidency (1933-1945) in American history. Plus, David Letterman is born on this day in 1947, and the polio vaccine is declared safe and effective in 1955.
