UNH lecturer tells the story of Franklin Roosevelt’s funeral train

University of New Hampshire lecturer Carl Lindblade tells the story of Franklin Rooseveltís funeral train, which traveled from Warm Springs, Georgia to Washington, DC and from there on to Hyde Park, New York where the president was laid to rest. FDR used the train for his presidential travels. At his death, it was converted so that the casket - placed atop a platform - could be seen by Americans who lined the route in a last gesture of respect.
