2-cent Roosevelt & Warm Springs

The 2-cent red Franklin D. Roosevelt memorial stamp was issued on August 24, 1945, in Warm Springs, Georgia, the site of Roosevelt's favorite retreat, known as the 'Little White House'. As the name implies, Warm Springs is noted for its naturally heated mineral pools, which Roosevelt visited seeking relief from his polio affliction. The pools and the beauty of the surrounding area moved him to construct his retreat. The 'Little White House is now a Georgia State Historical Site.
