DO WANT. ("Teddy Roosevelt Bandana")

Teddy Roosevelt-----This circa 1885 photo of the young Roosevelt shows him after he had a bit of seasoning by hunting and trail-riding in the West. At age 27, though he wasn’t quite the robust, filled-out, plains-tested rough-rider he would be a few years later after immersing himself in the struggles of running a ranch. He was forever grateful and forever friends with Seth Bullock of Deadwood fame, and with the other westerners whose tutelage and support helped him survive and grow as a man.

Teddy Roosevelt

Minutes before giving a speech on a campaign stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Theodore Roosevelt is shot in an assassination attempt. The would-be assassin’s bullet is slowed down after travelling through a steel eyeglass case and the folded, fifty page speech he intended to give, stopping in his chest. Realizing that he wasn’t coughing up blood, Roosevelt figured he was well enough to go ahead and deliver his speech rather than rush to the hospital.
