Title: Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt
  • When Theodore Roosevelt was a kid he had a
    terrible asthma problem. His asthma was so bad
    some nights he had to sit up and sleep or when it
    was worse than ever, his father had to take him
    on fast carriage rides to force him to breath.
    Because his asthma was so bad young Teddy
    couldnt go to school. Since he couldnt go to
    school his aunt taught him at home. Teddy had a
    great love for books, and since his family was
    rich, they had a huge library
  • he filled his mind with information from the

Early Years
  • Teddy became very interested in zoology (the
    study of animals) when he saw a dead seal in a
    market place. In his bedroom he started the Teddy
    Museum of Bugs. His family thought he was smart
    enough to go to school. One day his father pulled
    him aside and told him you have to make your
    body. Teddy answered him by saying I will.

College Years
  • Teddy finally made his body. He wasnt buff,
    but he was a normal average. Teddy had a new
    interest, Science . The College he went to was
    Harvard. His friends remember him as active,
    enthusiastic, and ambitious. Even though he made
    his body he wasnt a good athlete, and didnt
    participate in school sports. While at school
    Teddy started getting interested in politics and
    after Harvard he went to Columbia Law School.

Life changing events
  • His father Theodore Sr. died on February 1878. He
    also met Alice Lee in his junior year of college,
    and she later became his first wife. They married
    on his 22nd birthday, October 27, 1880.

More live changing events
  • November, 1884 Teddy was elected to the New
    York Assembly. He introduced a new bill called
    the Reform Charter Bill. The bill passed but
    Teddy suffered a double loss. Both his wife Alice
    and his mother died on 2/14/1884. Alice died of
    Barites Disease and his mother died of typhoid
    fever. Teddy named his first daughter, Alice,
    after his wife.

  • Losing his mother and wife was a very huge
    loss for Teddy. He left his New York life and
    started a ranch in North Dakota, called the
    Elkhorn ranch. He worked on the Ranch for three
    years. While being a rancher he became a healthy
    strong man and rounded up a gang of outlaws (bad
    guys) and took them to Dickson on foot for two
    days without sleeping for fear that the gang
    would run off.

New Wife and New Politics
  • When Teddy returned to New York he told his
    family that he was engaged to Edith Carow. His
    family told Teddy that he should run for mayor of
    New York. He ran for mayor and lost, but he
    already knew he was going to lose. Teddy and
    Edith were married in December of 1886 and moved
    to Washington in 1887. They had 5 more children.

26th President
  • Theodore Roosevelt was vice president when
    President McKinley was assassinated. Teddy took
    his place as President. He was the youngest
    person to become President. During this time he
    assembled a great railroad in the Northwest. He
    also orginized the construction of the Panama
    Canal. He was the president from 1901-1909.

The Year He Died
