FDR’s 41st Visit to Georgia

President Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in Warm Springs, Ga. for his forty-first visit to his “second home.” He had just finished a grueling re-election campaign, and was leading the nation (and the world) toward victory in World War II. But physically he was declining noticeably; he was suffering from heart disease and exhaustion. While this stay at Warm Springs certainly re-invigorated Roosevelt mentally, and to some degree physically (as he did get a lot of rest), his health problems would continue.
