The Man Who Loves to Hunt, but Also a Conservationist?
T.R. is known all over the world for his conservation acts. He created many National Parks including one very close to our home. On May 22nd of 1902, President Roosevelt named Crater Lake a National Forest and park. He also went on the make more parks across the country. In June of 1906 T.R. established the Antiquities act which allowed him to mark anywhere on US soil a historic or prehistoric landmark. As he states his reason for conserving the wildlife in his quote on the National Parks Service website, "I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the nature resources of our land; but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us."
(Theodore Roosevelt, Osawatomie, Kansas, August 31, 1910).

"Putting The Screws On Him"
Women Taking a Stand in Politics, Ethics, and Even Fashion.
Fashion is a never ending art. The way one dresses can explain their personality the way a picture can paint a thousand words. Over the years people around the world have witnessed huge changes in the fashion industry from corsets and bustiers to flapper dresses and feather headbands. During the Progressive era, women had begun to take a stand for their rights. It was time for them to put away their old Victorian apparel and dress for success in the real world. The style had to be more adequate for a work environment so the dresses became less thick and layered, and women accessorized with jewelry and hats. The style represented women as a new force to be reckoned with. They would take the workplace by storm and show all the men what they were made of.
