Shrine of Liberty

On April 7, 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt addressed a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. A month after his inauguration for his second term as America’s chief executive, Roosevelt barnstormed across Oklahoma and Texas en route to a Rough Riders reunion in San Antonio, where he organized the famous First Volunteer Cavalry Regiment for the Spanish-American War in the spring of 1898.
