Happy belated birthday to Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was born on January 30, 1882. FDR was certainly the most influential of all presidents, leading the nation out of the Great Depression as well as leading it to victory in World War II The nation elected him president four times, even though he died before he could finish the fourth term. He did all this without the use of his legs, the result of an attack of polio when he was a young man.(Image: FDR with his Delano grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and mother at Algonac, family home in Newburgh, New York, 1889.

Posting a few days late, but – John Tyler, the tenth president of the U.S. died this day (Jan. 18) in 1862. Tyler was the first president to attain the office because of the death of his predecessor, and people called him "His Accidency." He was not elected to another term, and when the Confederate states seceded, he joined them and was actually elected to the Confederate Congress–but died before it met. He was buried with the Confederate flag on his coffin.Tyler is also notable for marrying a second time, fathering 15 children in all, the most of any president. Tyler’s father was a roommate of Thomas Jefferson at the College of William and Mary, and Tyler himself recalled eating at Jefferson’s house. Tyler’s son also married at an advanced age, and had several children. Because of this one of Tyler’s grandchildren, Harrison Ruffin Tyler, is still alive today. See MoreSee Less
