Theodore Roosevelt was the twenty-sixth president of the United States. He served two terms, from 1901 to 1909. Theodore Roosevelt was born in 1858. As a child, he was often sick. He had asthma and was weak physically. He grew up to become a great hunter and outdoorsman. Roosevelt was one of the most popular presidents in U.S. history. Before he was president, Roosevelt was in the U.S. Navy. He was then elected governor of New York. He was William McKinley's vice president starting in 1897. McKinley died in 1901. Roosevelt took his place as president of the United States. He was 42. That made him the youngest president ever to serve. In 1902, President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt took a trip to the American South to help work out a land disagreement between Mississippi and Louisiana. While he was there, the president went hunting for bear. Days passed with no luck for the president, but lots of good luck for the bears. Finally, his guides captured a bear and offered to let the president shoot it, so he wouldn't go home empty-handed. Roosevelt refused. He thought it would be unfair and cruel. When word of the president's decision got out, a cartoonist for The Washington Star newspaper drew a picture of the bear and Roosevelt holding up his hand to say "No." The cartoon was seen all over the country, making the president, who was already popular, a hero. Meanwhile, the owner of a small store in New York asked his wife to make a toy bear for sale. He displayed it in his window with a copy of the cartoon and a sign that said, "Teddy's Bear." Americans were happy with the changes Roosevelt brought to the country. He tried to end corruption in business. He fought to pass laws to make work places safer. He stood up for the rights of poor people. Roosevelt won the 1904 presidential election. Roosevelt was known for his attitude. One of his favorite sayings was "Speak softly and carry a big stick." This means be quiet and decent, but protect yourself if you must. Roosevelt loved nature. He protected the wilderness with laws. He believed people must use natural resources wisely. Roosevelt went on a safari in Africa after he retired. He died in his sleep in 1919. He was 60 years old, his last words were "Please put out the lights". project info
