There are lots of ways to experience history but I can think of none more inviting than slipping into the silky mineral laden waters of the historic pools at Warm Springs, GA.
Franklin Roosevelt learned about these pools in 1927 and made history by turning them into a place of rehabilitation for individuals who had had polio.
A journalist interviewed him, the story went out across the wires, and before he knew what was happening a small contingent of "polios" had joined him for therapy. He shared his exercises with them, bought the dilapidated resort, and turned it into a place of therapy - a place to get a life back.
Ann Fay, the protagonist in Comfort found a new image of herself while at Warm Springs.
