Explore the timelines for important dates in TR’s personal and political life, military career, publications, hunting and exploration trips, as well as his time in Dakota Territory.
Gregory A. Wynn was introduced to Theodore Roosevelt in his teens, and he soon became a serious TR student and collector. Among his personal collection, Wynn holds more than 130 pieces of sheet music written between 1893 and 1941, dedicated to TR or to members of his family (e.g. Alice and Ted, Jr.). Theodore Roosevelt’s prominence in the American consciousness of the times is clear from the variety, color, and number of these marches, songs, and rags.
