First published 1899, this is a reprint with a Historical Introduction. Ranked among his significant writings, President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) dedicated the original issue to the Rough Riders and to the regular regiments who joined to form the Calvalry Division at Santiago. Following the 1898 declaration of the Spanish-American War, Roosevelt resigned from the Navy, and with the aid of U.S. Army Colonel Leonard Wood, gathered volunteers to form the First First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment; the troops became known as the "Rough Riders." A diverse mixture of individuals; college boys, cowboys, policemen, clergymen, hunters, Indians, socialites, and athletes, the Rough Riders became the most widely publicized single regiment in American history. .
