Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
The FDR Memorial honors the 32nd President of the United States and the era from 1933 to 1945. Divided into four outdoor rooms, each represents one of FDR's terms in office. This image represents the Great Depression. The inscription at the top of this room reads "I SEE ONE-THIRD OF A NATION ILL-HOUSED, ILL-CLAD, ILL-NOURISHED."
Fun Fact: One of the memorial's statues depicts Fala, FDR's faithful Scottish terrier.
