Theodore Roosevelt defines patriotism

Did you know that Theodore Roosevelt was an overly manly man? In October 1912, he was giving a campaign speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as the presidential candidate for the Progressive Party. Before starting the speech Roosevelt was shot to chest by a man named John Schrank, but the .32-caliber bullet didn’t do enough damage to stop him. After the incident, Theodore spoke for a good hour to people attending and was rushed to the hospital after that.
