We visited Union Station a few days ago and we think we found the exact spot where US President Franklin Roosevelt welcomed Philippine Commonwealth President Manuel Quezon and his family in May 1942.
President Quezon, other Commonwealth officials, and their families were in exile in DC during the Second World War.
