Despite the fact that Franklin Roosevelt visited Georgia 41 times between 1924 and 1945, historians have paid little attention to the significance of the time the 32nd President of the U.S. spent in the Peach State.  Georgia helped restore his sense of well-being after contracting polio and provided a launching pad for his Presidential campaigns.  Here, the Harvard graduate became friends with common men, had his active lifestyle of hunting and fishing photographed by the national press and fought with local politicians.  Sadly he died here in 1945. Through images, audio and video clips, and oral histories, Kaye Minchew explores this fascinating chapter of Georgia and America’s history.
