Product Description

Theodore Roosevelt proved that a political figure could also excel in military matters and literary endeavors. This work covers a most interesting list of heroes in American history, from Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark through various Revolutionary War participants, to activities during the Civil Way. Daniel Boone will always occupy a unique place in our history as the archetype of the hunter and wilderness wanderer. He was a true pioneer, and stood at the head of that class of Indian-fighters, game-hunters, forest-fellers, and backwoods farmers who, generation after generation, pushed westward the border of civilization from the Alleghenies to the Pacific.

Roosevelt was our 26th president and Lodge was a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, as well as Majority Leader. Good friends, Roosevelt's wife suggested they write a book about their favorite Americans and moments in history. The result is this (audio) book of 26 stories that also provide some moral and practical lessons.

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 7 hours; 6 CDs; read by Maurice England.

This work covers a most interesting list of heroes in American history, from Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark through various Revolutionary War participants, to activities during the Civil War. Daniel Boone will always occupy a unique place in our history as the archetype of the hunter and wilderness wanderer. He was a true pioneer, and stood at the head of that class of Indian-fighters, game-hunters, forest-fellers, and backwoods farmers who, generation after generation, pushed westward the border of civilization from the Alleghenies to the Pacific. As he himself said, he was "an instrument ordained of God to settle the wilderness.” Roosevelt was our 26th President and Lodge was a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, as well as Majority Leader. Good friends, Roosevelt’s wife suggested they write a book about their favorite Americans and moments in history. The result is this (audio) book of twenty-six stories that also provide some moral and practical lessons.

Author Bio

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.
