Event Description

The tumultuous last years of Theodore Roosevelt.

On his death bed he reflected, "I promised myself that I would work up to the hilt until I was sixty, and I have done it. I have kept my promise..." Highlighting the 1916 presidential campaign, America’s entry into the Great War in 1917, his fury surrounding Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, and his own sons going off to fight, TR's Last War captures the state of American politics and paints a portrait of an indomitable spirit.

Author David Pietrusza will be joined in conversation by Kevin Fitzpatrick, author of World War One New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War.
