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.

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