Fact of the Day: Mother Churchill

While Winston Churchill's mother is known as Lady Randolph Churchill, she was actually born Jeanette Jerome. Despite having a son that would become one of Great Britain's most famous Prime Ministers, she was born and raised in America.

  15. Did Winston Churchill spend any time over here in America as a youngster? Or was his mother already over in Europe by then?
