Harry Truman was the 33rd President of
the United States, serving from 1945-1953. He was a Democrat from Missouri.
Truman came to office when President Roosevelt died of poor heath. When Truman
was President, WWII ended, and the Cold War commenced. Most people remember Truman's
come-from-behind victory in the 1948 presidential election, and the Chicago
paper's erroneous headline declaring Dewey the winner.
