  • Hey! It's your friend Theodore Roosevelt!
  • The One and Only Rough Riders
  • That Little Passage Way... Oh, the Panama Canal!
  • Hello, my friends! My name is Theodore Roosevelt! If you didn't already know, I was your 26th Republican President. I'm kind of a big deal because I did change a lot of American for the good of humanity! My main goal as president was to make America a much better place by creating certain Laws and Acts!
  • The Roosevelt Dam!
  • I put together the group known as the "Rough Riders" which was a name given to the First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry under the leadership of me of course. The Riders consisted of Miners, Cowboys, and Law Enforcement who fought in battles such as the Battle of San Juan Hill and the Battle At Kettle Kill.
  • Gotta Keep It Clean
  • If you could describe me in a couple of words, this would be it. I created the Panama Canal which is a water passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, thus making shipping all sorts of supplies was a lot faster and cheaper!
  • Shady Business
  • The amazing man that I am, I created the National Reclamation Act of 1902, also known as the Newlands Act, which took money from the sale of public lands in the West and funded large-scale irrigation projects such as the Roosevelt Dam.
  • I was fed up with finding bugs in my sausage, therefore I created the Meat Inspection Act, which forced meatpackers to use heavy/strict saniatatin guidelines when packaging meat and selling it. You can thank me already!
  • I was sick and tired of these monopolies controlling 4 out of 5 of industries! That's 80% of industries! I was determined in 'Trust Busting" all of the illegal activity in these Trusts and Monopolies. In my presidency, I filled 44 antitrust suits! Go me!
