Rate this:
Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most fascinating and written-about presidents in American history-yet the most poignant tale about this larger-than-life man has never been told. Never has a more exuberant man been our nation's leader. He became a war hero, reformed the NYPD, busted the largest railroad and oil trusts, passed the Pure Food and Drug Act, created national parks and forests, won the Nobel Peace Prize, and built the Panama Canal-to name just a few. But the cause he championed the hardest, America's entry into WWI, would ultimately defeat him. His youngest son, Quentin, his favorite, would die in an air fight. The Roosevelts were a family of pillow fights and pranks, but it was Quentin, the frailest son, who worried his father the most. Looking at Theodore's realtionship with his son and understanding him as a father can tell us something new about this larger-than-life man.
