The longest-serving President in American history, Franklin D Roosevelt led the nation through its two most lethal challenges of the 20th century - the Great Depression and the Second World War. This is a collection of FDR's most stirring speeches, from his First Inaugural Address ('the only thing we have fear is fear itself"), to his speeches outlining the New Deal and opposing the "economic royalty" ("I welcome their hatred"), to his call for a declaration of war with Japan ("a date which will live in infamy"), the Atlantic Charter, and his joint statement with Stalin and Churchill at Yalta.

The number of speeches they found, quite an impressive collection. The only downside is they aren't in the right order for some reason.
Must I pick one, cuz I can't.
I liked everytying, but Roosevelt's accent doesn't sound New Yorkish for whatever reason.
Not an extreme reacitn, but it's very impressive tha they wre able to find recordings on theses speeches.
