Suffering from poor health following the historic Yalta Conference, Franklin D. Roosevelt spent little time in Washington, D.C., and instead retreated to the Little White House in Warm Springs, Ga. Roosevelt complained of a severe headache and slumped forward in his chair on April 12, 1945. He died later that afternoon. After a funeral procession in Washington, D.C., Roosevelt was buried in the rose garden of his Springwood estate. Roosevelt’s wife Eleanor was buried beside him after her death in 1962.
