Theodore Roosevelt Jr. (27 October 1858 – 6 January 1919), also known as Teddy Roosevelt, TR, and often just Theodore Roosevelt to distinguish him from his son Theodore Roosevelt Jr. (actually named Theodore Roosevelt III), was a writer, naturalist, soldier, and president of the United States (1901- 1909).
He became a popular hero for his role in association with the Spanish–American War and the "Rough Riders" regiment, in part due to Roosevelt's writing ability and reenactments filmed long after.
Theodore Roosevelt is associated with the "Progressive Era", likely a cause for (leftist) historians ranking him very highly, despite less politically correct views on issues such as race, common at this time.
