American Presidents Blog: The Roosevelts

One of the blogs I follow here at New York History is Michael Lorenzen’s American Presidents blog. he recently took a trip to New York and posted a three-part blog on the Roosevelt sites:

Part One – covered Sagamore Hill, the Long Island estate of Theodore and Edith Roosevelt.

Part Two – looked at Eleanor Roosevelt’s home Val-Kill.

Part Three – was a visit to the FDR Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park.

Interesting reads, from an interesting blog.
