This is series of stump speeches given before and after the 1901 assassination of McKinley. It's mostly an exposition on civic and national duty, and an hagiography of American expansion and exceptionalism, but also a warning that our democracy can only endure if we hold our politicians to the highest standards of honesty and morality.

Stands the test of time

TR was very well spoken and insightful. Many of his topics and powerful statements are as true now as they were when he first said them.

Probably one of the best books I’ve read. Completely contradicts the liberal propaganda that is too prevalent in today’s America.

Great speeches..Timeless lessons from a great man..
