Americans too often overlook the importance of President Theodore Roosevelt in the making of modern America. Theodore Roosevelt became President at a time when many of the institutions that we recognize today as part of our government were forming, and he molded them into what they are today. Neither the presidency nor the nation would ever be the same after him. This course will study both the man and the nation and how they worked together.
