With the end of war with Germany in sight, America's beloved President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, passed away on April 12th, 1945, from a fatal stroke due to a cerebral hemorrhage. He was our first four term President and had been in office for 12 years, one month and nine days. He was first sworn in office on March 4th, 1933.
Offered for sale is The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Newspaper dated Friday, April 13th, 1945, the day after the death of President Roosevelt. This is a 12 page section of the paper, not the complete newspaper. Throughout the 12 pages are numerous photos and stories about the life history of Roosevelt leading up to him becoming our 32nd President of The United States.

**Condition: The paper is slightly yellowed due to age and has small tears along the edges of the front page and last page of the paper. Overall the paper is in nice condition.
I find it amazing that when I locate newspapers published during WWII I get to hold a piece of history in my hands. The newspaper was the lifeline in giving the facts, honest facts, to all Americans on just how the war was going on in Europe and in the Pacific where their loved ones may be fighting.
A nice gift to give to a youngster in their search to learn about WWII. Would also make a great gift for a member of the Armed Forces or a Veteran. In 2015, "WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FEAR ITSELF"--FDR, 1933. God Bless Our Vets!! and “The Greatest Generation”!!
