Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, Washington D.C.
This interesting memorial depicts FDR in a manner which he generally sought to be depicted in life, that is in his wheel chair. Roosevelt strove to appear in public as able to walk, even though he cold only do so with difficulty and with the aid of braces.
This memorial shows an older Roosevelt, and is therefore perhaps fitting for a memorial on this page. In a way, FDR was one of the casualties of World War Two, having been worn down increasingly by the burden of his office during the war years.
