On November 30, 1874, Sir Winston Churchill was born in Woodstock, England. He would go on to lead the United Kingdom as Prime Minister through World War II. Toward the end of the war, Churchill worked with U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to craft the treaties and accords that have defined the world since WWII.
