Title:

Excerpt from address by Theodore Roosevelt at Butte, Montana

Collection:

Massachusetts Historical Society

Description:

President Roosevelt speaks in Butte, Montana, on the character of the United States, and denounces sectionalism and factionalism that seek to divide the country. He particularly emphasizes this point regarding the tension between different social classes, and says that the law must apply fairly to everyone, regardless of section, creed, or class. He says that the government must never be a plutocracy or one that has been given over to mob rule. He denounces millenarianism, and says that the United States must work through its problems in practical ways, rather than hoping for miracles to solve everything.
