Roosevelt in the News

Theodore gives a campaign speech in 1912.

Theodore Roosevelt was a man with much to say. This was particularly evident on the campaign trail where he drew large crowds. Reporters, often at the front of these crowds, were eager to listen and write articles for their newspapers. This photo was taken during Roosevelt's 'Bull Moose' Campaign in 1912.
