11[tr-m] Brownsville, Texas 1907
- Jan 6, 2000Having now misplaced my exact reference, I've probably gotten the town
and date wrong, but the event was that TR dishonorably discharged an
entire black regiment because no one would come forward to take
responsibility for a public altercation.
TR received some negative comment at the time -- that this was a
"racist" act -- and the decision was reversed to an honorable discharge
by a military court some years later.
This event seems rather uncharacteristic of TR's rather "liberal"
Can anyone offer an insight into why this occurred?
Thank you and Happy New Century.
