Franklin Delano Roosevelt wheelchair statue

This sculpture of FDR in a wheelchair, "First Inaugral" by Robert Grahm, near the entrance of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial was added in January 2001.
Roosevelt's reliance on a wheelchair was not publicized during his life because of the stigma of weakness associated with disability.
