Theodore Roosevelt.. An American Original
by Michael Caleb Tasker
An American original and a true icon, Theodore Roosevelt's start in life did not foreshadow the wildly adventurous life that he led. He was not a "Log Cabin President" like Lincoln, and the title of "Cowboy President" is
usually reserved for Lyndon Johnson. However Roosevelt, a most unlikely candidate, is in some ways more deserving of these labels. While Roosevelt is sometimes referred to as the "Conservation President," he may also deserve the
title of "Backwoodsman President." A dangerously ill child from an affluent New York City family, Roosevelt suffered from asthma, poor eyesight, a heart condition and was frequently ill. However, Roosevelt lived the life he advocated;
The Strenuous Life, as his 1899 speech was called. Earlier in his life, with his father's help, he carefully conditioned his body and mind and went on to be the runner-up in the 1879 Harvard University's boxing championship,
and soon thereafter, "The Cowboy of the Dakotas." Not to mention the President of the United States!
Best of Backwoodsman
