Description
In the 1920s, memories of Theodore Roosevelt begin to fade. The Great War is over, Woodrow Wilson is ill, and the American public is weary of domestic reform and events overseas. The Republican Party nominates Warren G. Harding for president, while Democratic nominee James M. Cox chooses thirty-eight-year-old Franklin D. Roosevelt to be his running mate. FDR campaigns with relish, and eventually persuades Eleanor to join him as he crisscrosses the country. She grows to enjoy meeting new people and dealing with the press, and also gains a new-found respect for Franklin's most trusted advisor, Louis Howe. Although Cox and FDR lose the 1920 election to Harding, Franklin's tireless campaigning gains him national recognition and the attention of prominent Democrats. For Eleanor, the 1920 campaign gives her a taste of what is possible outside the confines of home, and she is determined to find "real work" and to redefine her role with her husband and family. On Wednesday, August 10, 1921, Franklin Roosevelt returns from a day of outdoor activities to relax on the back porch of the family's summer home at Campobello Island. He complains of feeling feverish and retires upstairs to bed, where he remains for days, unable to walk, shaking with fever and suffering severe pain. At first, no one knows what is wrong with him, but eventually a diagnosis is made: infantile paralysis – polio. Franklin is transported first to New York City and then to his mother's home in Hyde Park to recuperate. While at Hyde Park, FDR becomes re-acquainted with his distant cousin, Margaret "Daisy" Suckley, whose importance in his life will increase in the decades to come. By early 1922, Eleanor Roosevelt makes her first steps into the world of public speaking and political organizing and meets new female friends active in Progressive causes. Meanwhile, Franklin travels to the Florida Keys, spending months away from his family drifting on a houseboat, desperately trying a series of "cures" to help rebuild the use of his legs. With Eleanor's tacit approval, FDR's secretary Missy Le Hand serves as his companion and hostess. 1924 is a crucial year for Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Eleanor spends the spring fighting Tammany bosses over the choice of women delegates to the Democratic National Convention and then supports Al Smith's run for governor of New York against her cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. She also continues her quest for independence with the construction of Val-Kill, a stone cottage two miles east of Springwood that becomes the first home that is truly her own. Meanwhile, Franklin prepares for a political "comeback," with the opportunity to nominate Al Smith for president at the National Democratic Convention. FDR spends weeks practicing "walking" with minimal assistance, and at noon on June 26 he makes his slow, careful movement toward the microphones, delivering his "Happy Warrior" introduction of Al Smith to an ecstatic crowd. Smith fails to get the nomination, but Franklin Delano Roosevelt makes national headlines. In October, FDR travels to rural Georgia to bathe in the mineral waters at a worn down resort. It is here, holding on to the edge of the pool, that the warm, buoyant water allows him to stand for the first time since 1921. FDR eventually purchases the resort and is present when the town is officially renamed Warm Springs. During the mid-to-late 1920s, Eleanor engages in politics and social causes while Franklin's attention is focused primarily on the struggle to stand on his own. Then in 1928, Al Smith is nominated for president and FDR is tapped to run for governor of New York. Smith loses to Herbert Hoover, but FDR wins his election and Eleanor Roosevelt becomes a reluctant governor's wife. With the stock market crash of 1929, and Hoover's unconvincing promises of recovery, the American people are ready for change. FDR's progressive leadership as governor leads members of his party to nominate him for president in 1932. He wins the presidency by seven million votes. In February 1933, while waiting to take office, FDR narrowly escapes an assassination attempt in Miami. Seventeen days later, during a time when banks in 40 of 48 states are closed and at least 40 million people have no dependable source of income, FDR, in his inaugural address, assures the American people that, "…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance…"
