On April 12, 1945, five months after being elected to his fourth term as president, Franklin D. Roosevelt died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage at his vacation home in Warm Springs, Georgia. A funeral train carried his body back to the White House, where he lay in state before being buried at his estate in Hyde Park, New York. Vice President Harry S. Truman succeeded Roosevelt as president.
