New Deal Postage Stamps: The Homes of President Roosevelt
Above: "White House." Franklin Roosevelt lived in the White House longer than any other president. Why? Because, while not a perfect man, most American knew that he was fighting for them and not just for wealthy Americans. So, they kept re-electing him. Image from personal collection.
Above: "Little White House, Warm Springs." Roosevelt frequently went to Warm Springs, Georgia, for leg therapy, and stayed in his "Little White House." Roosevelt died in this house on April 12, 1945. Today, you can tour the "Little White House Historic Site." Image from personal collection.
Above: "Hyde Park." Roosevelt was born and raised in the Springwood Estate at Hyde Park, New York, and once said, "All that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River." That home is now a National Historic Site for all Americans to visit and enjoy. Image from personal collection.
