      Theodore Roosevelt: Champion of the American Spirit

      14 - 19 July
      *Sunday-Friday; $775 double; $1,035 single; $375 commuter


      *Theodore Roosevelt remains one of the most popular figures in all of American history. His tremendous energy and unshakable moral convictions would bring great achievement. Early in his life he led the Rough Riders up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War, but ultimately he would be drawn to politics and the White House. Teddy Roosevelt was greatly loved by the public for although he was born into a privileged New York family, he had an uncanny ability to relate to all Americans regardless of social standing. His public image however, also concealed enormous personal shortcomings. This seminar will review the life and times of Theodore Roosevelt, as participants attempt to better understand one of the more complex figures in American history.
