After Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s polio worsened, the president was hardly ever seen walking, let alone filmed walking. Now, thanks to a donation to the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, a second video of FDR walking has been made viewable.
The footage, which you can watch above, was taken in 1937 as FDR struggled to exit a baseball stadium in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The video was taken by Major League Baseball pitcher Jimmie DeShong, and his family recently donated the film to the state historical association.
