Franklin D. Roosevelt, commonly known by his initials FDR, was President of the United States during the 1940s.

In 1943, Roosevelt became the first President to travel in an airplane, aboard a Boeing 314 "flying boat." In 1944, he switched to flying aboard a C-54 Skymaster dubbed "The Sacred Cow," establishing the tradition of each President having their own dedicated aircraft. (24: The Ultimate Guide)

During wartime, Roosevelt signed an executive order sanctioning the internment of 200,000 Japanese-Americans. Wayne Palmer mentioned that most historians considered the action to be a shameful mistake. ("Day 6: 6:00am-7:00am")

When Roosevelt met with Churchill and Stalin at Yalta, both other leaders sat while meeting the American President. This historic image was mentioned by Charles Logan during Day 5. ("Day 5: 7:00am-8:00am")

A portrait of Roosevelt hung in a hallway inside the White House. ("Day 7: 7:00pm-8:00pm")

During Day 9, James Heller confused Franklin with Theodore Roosevelt when he referenced the latter's Goodwill Tour. ("Day 9: 11:00am-12:00pm")
