Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to men who have volunteered for service in World War I

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt writes to the men who have volunteered for service in the firing lines during World War I to discuss his disappointment at being unable to join them, after President Wilson said Roosevelt could not reform the Rough Riders. Each man who was to be involved in the regiment can now join the military another way or serve his country in civil life. The funds that have been used for the regiment will be withdrawn and applied to another purpose. All four divisions would have sailed by September 1.
