Fact of the Day: Little White House

When not in Washington D.C., President Franklin D. Roosevelt would stay in Warm Springs, Georgia. Often living in a modest home nicknamed the Little White House. FDR would later pass away there in 1945.

I've heard that they avoided photographing him in his wheelchair because they didn't want the public to know he had polio.

He took advantage of the warm springs there...
