Miller, J. Martin, editor. The Triumphant Life of Theodore Roosevelt: Citizen, Statesman, President: the Inspiring Narrative of His Wonderful Career Related by Hon. Shelby M. Cullom, Hon. William Loeb, Hon. George C. Perkins, and Other Distinguished Authorities. 1905.

This book is a campaign biography of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the U.S. (1901-1909), which touts his achievements in order to gain votes. He is shown here in uniform because he initially gained fame during the Spanish-American War. At the outbreak of war Roosevelt resigned his post as Assistant Secretary of the Navy and formed the Rough Riders, a cavalry regiment that was widely covered in the press. As president he established the Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, asserting that the U.S. could intervene in foreign relations between European and Latin American states—including militarily. The Corollary was used to intervene in multiple conflicts in the early 20th century. Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for helping to negotiate the end of the Russo-Japanese War.
