From Traces of Texas: Teddy Roosevelt in San Antonio for Rough Rider reunions AFTER the Spanish-American war, but never any during the time he was actually recruiting for that war, before they all went off to Cuba for the charge up San Juan Hill. This photo was taken in 1897 when Teddy was looking for volunteers to join him. Here he is in front of Mission Concepcion which is still standing today.

Photo taken in 1898, and shows Teddy Roosevelt as a Rough Rider. The photograph was taken in Florida, so the group would have been getting ready to go to Cuba for the Spanish American War.
