Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most active of American historic figures. He dominated his era as a military leader of the ""Rough Riders"" in the Spanish American War, as a prosecutor, as President, as a naturalist, and as a writer.
Henry Cabot Lodge was elected to the state legislature (1880-81), the House of Representatives (1887-93) and the Senate (1893-1924). After the split with Theodore Roosevelt, Lodge led the conservative wing of the Republican Party. A staunch critic of Woodrow Wilson, Lodge complained about the way the administration organized the war effort. When the Republican Party gained control of Congress, in November, 1918 Lodge, was able to obstruct Wilson's policies. As chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Lodge led the campaign against the ratification of the Versailles Peace Treaty and membership of the League of Nations. Lodge organized the passing of a series of amendments that would require the approval of Congress before the United States would be bound by certain decisions of the League. Woodrow Wilson refused to accept Lodge's amendments and the measure was defeated. In 1921 Lodge served as one of the USA's delegates to the Washington Conference on the Limitation of Armaments. Henry Cabot Lodge died on November 9th, 1924.
