Subject: RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS
I was still in the Army when Roosevelt died (1945), not being discharged till the end of that year.
WW2 wrought large changes in American society, and war industries caused movement of many from rural to city habitats.
A valuable series. I thought I already knew too much about the Roosevelts, but I was reminded of a lot I forgot about what I had heard and thought in those years.
