Theodore Roosevelt was the first U.S. president to have his career and life chronicled on a large scale by motion picture companies (even though his predecessors, Grover Cleveland and William McKinley, were the first to be filmed). This presentation features films which record events in Roosevelt's life from the Spanish-American War in 1898 to his death in 1919. The majority of films are from the Theodore Roosevelt Association Collection, while the remainder are from the Paper Print Collection. Besides containing scenes of Roosevelt, these films include views of world figures, politicians, monarchs, and friends and family members of Roosevelt who influenced his life and the era in which he lived. Commemorative events up to 1921 are also included as well as silent documentaries compiled from earlier footage by the Theodore Roosevelt Association between 1919 and 1928.

Hard times in History

these are great clips and a great service that I tunes provides for us all, so that we may know and familiarize with the history of this great land. I do hope that more of these great vintage videos are made available, once only viewed by people who traveled to Washington D C. Today everyone can learn the way of life of the time, and the decisions made where some were right choices and some we can learn so that better decision are made today. Thank you I tunes for this great service. A knowledge of Yesterday will build better tomorrow.
