Third inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt
The third inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt as the 32nd president of the United States happened on January 20, 1941. It was the start of the third term of Franklin D. Roosevelt as president and the only term of Henry A. Wallace as vice president.
This was the one and only time that a president has ever been sworn in to a third term in office. After the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed in 1951, this meant that no person could be elected more than twice as president.
