Teddy Roosevelt has always been a fascinating historical person to me. Learned a couple of new tidbits the other day. Teddy was on the Harvard boxing team, a brown belt in Judo, and one of his lifelong friends, who he met during his western sojourns, was Seth Bullock (yep, the character from the Deadwood series was based on a real person). Bullock was a member of Teddy's Rough Riders. He was a captain but his unit never left the states.
(That's Bullock with Teddy above.)
