Darrel Draper presents¬†Theodore Roosevelt: Rough Rider President. ¬†Roosevelt (1858-1919) was the 26th President (1901-1909) of the United States. Better known as “Teddy,” he was famous for his energetic personality, his range of interests, his model of masculinity, and his “cowboy” image.


Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held.


During this spirited costumed presentation, watch this beloved historical icon come to life as you set swept up in the excitement of Roosevelt’s campaign for his third term for president!
