A President in Our Midst: Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Georgia

Kaye Lanning Minchew

Franklin Delano Roosevelt loved Georgia—and Georgians—so much that he visited the state forty-one times between 1924 and 1945. This rich gathering of photographs and remembrances recalls the vital role of Georgia’s people and places in FDR’s life and career.

“A unique, in-depth look at Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s relationship to Georgia.”—Newnan Times-Herald
