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




University of New Hampshire lecturer Carl Lindblade tells the story of Franklin Roosevelt’s 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.
