Teddy Roosevelt Performs at Annual Historical Society

May 22, 2011

05/23/11  The 26th President of the United States was well received at the 40th Annual Dinner of the Marshall County Historical Society last week.  Telling stories of raising cattle in the Dakotas, of cleaning up New York City as Police Commissioner, ensuring the construction of the Panama Canal, and sending the navy fleet on a world tour to demonstrate the strength and resolve of the American people, Theodore Roosevelt held the audience’s attention.  He discussed politics, world events, and the establishment of Pelican Island as the country’s first national wildlife sanctuary.  Interpreter Gib Young of Huntington gave a “bully of a show.”
