Theodore Roosevelt A Life from Beginning to End by Hourly History is an eBook published in 2016 and one of the best ones, being a bit short, if you desire a reading where you can find the most comprehensive facts for starting to develop an idea about this sunny, strong, and great American President or if you need an exciting reading for some school tests.
Nothing is left out, in fact, and the reading is extremely captivating.
Roosevelt was not born poor as it happened to Lincoln, but his family, he was a New Yorker one of the best known of the city.
He started to become an outdoor man because of some health problems and this spirit for adventure, hunting, outdoor life will be a great lief-motif for this fearless man.
He studied in great universities and developed pretty soon a strong political passion. We can say that Roosevelt lived a passionate life, so passionate that sometimes speaking of sentiments was hard to him.
He lost his first wife and also when he wrote his auto-biography he didn't mention this first, beloved wife disappeared too soon from his existence.
Later he married a second lady with which he has had a lot of children and with which he lived with for the rest of his existence.
Why Roosevelt became president?
This one is a story of an assassination. Roosevelt was vice-president in the cabinet of President McKinley.
McKinley was shot on Sept 6 1901 in a delicate part of the body, the abdomen by a man an anarchist inspired by the assassination of the italian king in 1900.
Problem in this case like also in the case of President Garfield was that a bullet wasn't removed from the body producing gangrene. The President died on Sept 1901.
Roosevelt developed a great program for the USA.
Being an outdoor man he understood that the beautiful, wonderful precious, glorious American lands and forests are a treasure and he created National Parks, preserving them from the action of men.
He also tried to control corporations and he fought with all himself for the rights of consumers establishing that no one would have anymore sold maple syrup telling to customers (it's an example) that that one was maple syrup when realistically was something else.
Labels were introduced and lies not anymore permitted.
Each customer could decide his/her personal culinary destiny :-)
Roosevelt was also re-elected in 1904.
Famous the story of Teddy Bear, an episode I personally discovered just few months ago reading and reviewing American History books, although I received various teddy bears from my correspondents during the years.
The President was a great hunter but once he refused to kill an old and sick bear.
What kind of gusto a person could find when the animal that would have been killed sick and old? There wasn't any kind of confrontation.
The story was pretty soon known and became a commercial success. Teddy Bears are sold now first of all during Valentine's Day but also during Christmas Time and everytime someone desires to affirm friendship, love, good feelings for another person. It's a tender act and one of the most appreciated one.
Roosevelt once out from policy, tried to return in the big scene during the electoral campaign of 1912 but he also was part of a tentative of assassination. The bullet never removed was located in chest muscle.
So what happened? That later this bullet was also one of the causes of his departure. Not just this, but it was of great help unfortunately.
Roosevelt died in peace while he was sleeping in 1919.
