Theodore Roosevelt Phrase
We wish peace, but we wish the peace of justice, the peace of righteousness.
We wish it because we think it is right and not because we are afraid
Born in New York City on October 27, 1858, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt was governor of New York before becoming U.S. vice president. At age 42, Teddy Roosevelt became the youngest man to assume the U.S. presidency after President William McKinley was assassinated in 1901. He won a second term in 1904. Known for his anti-monopoly policies and ecological conservationism, Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in ending the Russo-Japanese War. He died in New York on January 6, 1919.
It's one of the most amazing and improbable moments in American history. It's the story of a man thrust into national prominence following great tragedy. A man who went on to become one of the most influential U.S. Presidents of all time. And you can experience it for yourself, at the house where Theodore Roosevelt was sworn into office, where the modern presidency began, and where a legend was introduced to the world.
