Description:

Theodore Roosevelt tells Brigadier General Greenway his plan is "absolutely right." There is a remote possibility the United States will engage in a war with Germany, and if there is a war with Mexico, Roosevelt will not go if it can be honorably avoided. Roosevelt believes that the United States should cut off the importation of warms into Mexico, put militia on the Mexican border, and trust the regular army to handle the work of conquest.
