Theodore Roosevelt writes a New Year’s address telling the American people they must make sacrifices at home in order for the war to be won. He includes a statement his son Ted Roosevelt made to his troops.
Today the TR Digital Library published 248 new items. Below are some highlights from the newly published documents.
On January 6, 1870, Theodore Roosevelt wrote to Dora and Thomas Watkins about the Christmas he spent in Rome with his family.
We often hear from descendants of those with whom TR corresponded regarding original letters that have been passed down in their family. Recently, Mark Bardenwerper contacted us about a series of such letters to James Drain. Theodore Roosevelt’s relationships were sometimes based on his passions for reading and hunting. His relationship with James Andrew Drain, president of the National Rifle Association (NRA), was one of those connections.
