A New York Senator, Secretary of Navy and a vice presidential nominee in 1920, Franklin D. Roosevelt came along at the right time to accept his party's nomination and reshape the way the U.S. took care of itself.
Supporters see his giving a hand to those in need during the Great Depression, critics see his policies as heavy-handed socialism that keep the economy in dire straits for longer than necessary.
Four terms in office and a global war gives you no shortage of impactful moments, all of which are finely covered by any number of sources.
Instead I'll share with you a 1936 Landon vs. Roosevelt campaign memory from Henry, a young New England man who was there. Click here to hear it.
There just aren't stories like that anymore.
When Henry told me that story I asked him where he was in the photograph. Without hesitation he pointed to the boy just to the right of the Roosevelt sign.
It is possible, though not very likely, that Henry himself once wore this exact button. It was picked up in an antique store in his part of the country.
That "No Third Term" button will never be seen again in an American presidential campaign because of the 22nd Amendment, but it lives on as evidence that not everyone liked the man.
