CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A national exhibit honoring President Franklin Delano Roosevelt opens Monday at the University of West Georgia.

The university's Ingram Library will host FDR: His Vision, Our Freedoms, Still Alive through Friday, Mar. 8.

The exhibit, which is free to browse, features objects the former president used while living at the Little White House in Warm Springs, Ga. Roosevelt stayed at the Little White House while receiving rehabilitation for the childhood polio that left him wheelchair-bound. He died there on Apr. 12, 1945.

Additionally, the exhibit uses photographs, documents, political cartoons and posters to paint a portrait of FDR and his four terms in office during a difficult period in U.S. and world history.

Allan M. Winkler, a professor of history at Miami University in Ohio, will host a talk about FDR at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21 in the Ingram Library.
