FDR’s 13th Visit to Georgia

Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in Warm Springs, Georgia for a brief visit before returning to work on Democratic candidate Al Smith’s presidential election campaign. Ultimately Smith would lose the election, but Roosevelt would be persuaded to run for governor of New York, an election he narrowly won. This marked Roosevelt’s thirteenth Georgia visit.
