Summary
Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt are the most prominent members of one of the most important families in American history. Theodore and Franklin occupy the White House for nineteen of the first forty-five years of the twentieth century, years during which much of the modern world – and the modern state – is created. They share an unfeigned love for people and politics and a willingness to defy class prejudices to help create a true democracy of equal opportunity. Along with Eleanor, Theodore's best-loved niece and Franklin's wife, all three overcome personal obstacles as they independently – and collectively – transform the model of a nation's responsibility to its citizens and the wider world. The century-long Roosevelt legacy begins with the birth of Theodore Roosevelt on October 27th, 1858. The trajectory of his life, from a sickly, asthmatic childhood to his vibrant presidency, is defined in its early years by academic achievement, political success and a blissful marriage. But on February 14, 1884, the tragic deaths of his mother and his wife on the same day leave TR shattered, and only by escaping to the Badlands of North Dakota does he find a refuge and the chance to re-build his body and spirit. Franklin Delano Roosevelt is born on January 30, 1882, an only child doted upon by his loving parents and treated with utmost respect by tutors, servants and staff on the family estate in Hyde Park, New York. FDR has little experience dealing with other children his own age and when, at the age of fourteen, he enters Groton School, he experiences rejection and bullying and a sense that he is "entirely out of things." After his return east from North Dakota, Theodore Roosevelt remarries, this time to his childhood sweetheart, Edith Carow, and settles in at Sagamore Hill, the family home in Oyster Bay, New York. There, with his wife and six children, TR begins a life steeped in writing, physical activity and political ambition. He is eventually appointed a civil service commissioner in Washington, D.C. and one of four Police Commissioners in New York City. On October 11, 1884, Eleanor Roosevelt is born to Theodore's troubled alcoholic younger brother, Elliot, and his beautiful but aloof wife, Anna Hall. Eleanor's childhood is marked by sorrow and loss, as first her mother, then younger brother and beloved father die, leaving her and her youngest brother in the care of their maternal grandmother at a large, dark estate on the Hudson River. After the election of President William McKinley in 1896, Theodore Roosevelt lobbies hard to be named Assistant Secretary of the Navy. When the US battleship Maine blows up in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898, and McKinley finally declares war against Spain, TR enters the war as a lieutenant colonel. He is determined not to give his own children any reason to question his sense of duty the way he was forced to do years ago by his own father's failure to serve in the Civil War. TR's regiment, popularly known as "The Rough Riders," lands in Cuba, and eventually they and other troops rout the enemy at Las Guasimas and then push on to a major battle at San Juan Hill, where TR experiences his "crowded hour" and "the great day of my life." Theodore Roosevelt's time in Cuba makes him an American hero, and many at home urge him to run for Governor of New York. He is elected governor in 1898, and soon begins to implement progressive reforms. When President William McKinley seeks a new running mate, Theodore Roosevelt reluctantly agrees and they win the election of 1900. Then in mid-September, 1901, TR receives word that President McKinley is dying from an assassination attempt. He races to Buffalo, New York, but by the time he arrives the President is dead. On September 14th, 1901, Theodore Roosevelt, takes the oath of office and, at forty-two-years-old, he becomes the youngest president in American history
