Some photographs from my visit to Springwood - FDR's home in Hyde Park, New York (about 2 hours north of NYC). Click here for more information to tour his home, visit his gravesite and walk through the large museum. If you are in New York, this is a not miss for any fan of U.S. history.
Walls filled with framed pictures and paintings.
The bed where FDR was born.
View into FDR's bedroom from Eleanor's bedroom.
Bedside phone with a direct line to the White House.
From Sara Roosevelt's bedroom.
Knick-knacks on FDR's Oval Office desk.
Gravesite of Franklin and Eleanor.
Uniform worn by Eleanor.
FDR's draft card.
First Draft of "Day of Infamy" speech.
As you can see, the speech was originally going to say "live in world history" instead of "live in infamy".
