Hello!
I'm writing a military history research paper on Teddy's involvement and influence on the Spanish American War. Does anybody have suggestions for good articles or books, I'd greatly appreciate it!

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris

The War Lovers by Evan Thomas

With The Rough Riders in Cuba by Theodore Roosevelt

The History Channel had a pretty good documentary called The Spanish American War-The First Intervention if you can find it.

Also, the Podcaster Dan Carlin (he does the Hardcore History podcast) has an excellent 4 hour overview of the Spanish American War with lots of info about TR. http://www.dancarlin.com 

Thanks!
I'm excited to give that podcast a listen!

A Passion to Lead: Theodore Roosevelt In His Own Words Edited by Laura Ross

Thanks!

Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, already recommended below, is very very thorough. 100% worth it.

"We had 97% in ATL. Were not able to make the drive north to see the full shebang (I got called in on a contrac), but should be able to see the next one in seven years. A couple shots from Little Five Points."

David R. replied to David R.'s discussion Do you speak German fluently?
"Thank you, Christian.  Here are the English and the (Google) German translation.  (I am hoping that I was successful in attaching a file to my Word document.  I guess we'll just have to see if it worked.)"

Sir replied to Sir's discussion Total eclipse 8/21, US mainland
"Yes.  Saw a ring of fire around a black disk.  Supposedly it was the corona, but it was plenty bright. Had so much fun looking thru my 2 pinhole cameras, seeing it on my tablet, and an occasional look thru eclipse glasses."
