characters FDRs Funeral Train ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The April 1945 journey of FDR's funeral train became a thousand mile odyssey fraught with heartbreak and scandal As it passed through the night few of the grieving onlookers gave thought to what might be happening behind the Pullman shades where women whispered and men tossed back highballs Inside was a Soviet spy a newly. Page 61 my book The entire city of Charlotte North Carolina or damned near it had turned out Every street reaching away from the railroad track was for three blocks a solid mass of people They stood in the darkness staring at the funeral trainIf you are a Franklin Roosevelt aficionado this book is wonderful And if you are a train aficionado it also has its appealIt covers the death of Franklin Roosevelt in his secondary home of Warm Springs Georgia and then the journey from there to Washington DC thence to New York City and to the President s ancestral home at Hyde Park on the Hudson RiverPage 57 On the approach to Gainesville fifty miles out of Atlanta Smith a news reporter had stared out the windows in disbelief as the train passed a group of women picking cotton under the merciless sun At the sight of the train they dropped to their knees in the tilled dirt their palms stretched up to the heavensTwenty five thousand had come Greenville South Carolina and their number stretched half a mile on either side of the main lineThere were several locomotives used in pulling the train And from Washington DC to Hyde Park there were two trains It was at Washington DC that the new President Harry Truman joined the funeral processionThe author presents well the atmosphere aboard the train of bereaved politicians who had lost their President Franklin Roosevelt had been at the helm since 1933The future had suddenly become a vast unknown There was a tremendous awareness of the staggering task faced by the new and unknown President And the entire nation was undergoing this and to some extent all the Allied countries still at war with Germany and JapanThe mood of the train journey to Hyde Park was predominately that of bereavement The mood back to Washington DC transitioned to a much political one with President Truman at the center of it allTwo notesThe author perpetuates the myth of the complete animosity between Eleanor Roosevelt and Franklin s mother Sara It was not that simple and was certainly not as the author suggests an unrelenting hatred between these two very magnificent womenOnly a few pages are spent on the spy episode mentioned in the book s subtitle a Soviet spy And nothing of conseuence was obtained during the train journeyThere are many characters introduced and the author does a fine job of integrating these with the overall national mood at the timePage 34 Eleanor Roosevelt At a time like that you don t really feel your own feelings When you re in a position of being caught in a pageant you become part of a world outside yourself and you act almost like an automaton You recede as a person You build a facade for everyone to see and you live separately inside the facade Something comes to protect you

characters FDRs Funeral Train ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Widowed Eleanor Roosevelt who had just discovered that her husband's mistress was in the room with him when he died all the Supreme Court justices and incoming president Harry S Truman who was scrambling to learn secrets FDR had never shared with himWeaving together information from long forgotten diaries and declassified. I read this book on the recommendation of my husband a train enthusiast so was prepared not to get all the details about the train And didn t But that didn t deter my interest Robert Klara s book covers the events leading up to and and immediately following Franklin Delano Roosevelt s death at Warm Springs Georgia in April 1945 In addition to the logistical and technical details involved in assembling the funeral train and securing its passage from Georgia to Washington DC for a invitation only funeral service and on to Hyde Park New York Klara captures the mood in the country at the president s untimely death as well as the relationships among the primary players and the politics at playNone of these events were unknown to me But it was interesting to read the individuals feelings and reactions as recorded in their own journals autobiographies or newspaper accounts from the day The things from Klara s account that stand out to me arehow closely the actual funeral followed FDR s wishes which he had written and sealed away years before They were not revealed until after the funeral Despite their strained marriage Eleanor knew her husband well enough to know almost exactly how he would want his funeral handled and that she dida renewed admiration and respect for Eleanor Roosevelt Her marriage to FDR was difficult her mother in law thought she was not good enough for her son and made that clear to Eleanor at nearly every opportunity her husband was unfaithful Lucy Rutherford his mistress was present at the cottage in Warm Springs when he died an arrangement in which her daughter Anna had been complicit Yet she put on a brave face carried out FDR s funeral wishes as she knew he would want them and appears to have buried her grief and disappointment with those who betrayed her Prepared to slip uietly from public life she heeded the advice of one FDR s advisors to continue speaking out on importance issues because the public would want to hear what she had to say She did continue an active public life including serving as a delegate to the United Nationshow unprepared Harry Truman was to assume the presidency He knew nothing about the Manhattan Project and the efforts to build an atomic bomb until the hours immediately following Roosevelt s death Granted he had not been vice president but a few months but given that it was war time and important meetings and negotiations were underway among the Allies it seems very short sighted if not arrogant not to have brought the vice president into the fold on these matters of strategic national security Especially since FDR himself realized he was in declining health This was a different era The press seems to have been much willing to overlook things that today would occupy 247 coverage on cable news if not the major networks I wonder if we would be better off knowing a little less
