Did you know Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in ending the Russo-Japanese War.

Teddy got his nickname when he was out hunting and when he had his eye in the scope of a sniper, pointing at a bear, he refused to shoot it because he thought it was unsportsmanlike.

Roosevelt fought to pass the Pure Food and Drug Act, to put in place many safeguards to grant food safety, quality controls in manufacturing, and drug labeling. In addition, he fought against unfair trade practices, establishing precedents for the president’s intervention in business, trade and consumer affairs.
