FDR’s Final Visit to Georgia

President Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in Warm Springs, Ga. for his forty-second (and final) visit to his “second home.” He was suffering from advancing heart disease and exhaustion resulting from his efforts in leading the final push to end World War II and preparing for establishing an organization to try and ensure world peace afterwards. Unfortunately, FDR would not live to see these particular dreams realized, as he would die in less than two weeks.
