Great History Story!
Review by RICHARD on 06/05/22 review stating Great History Story!
I thought this was a great History Documentary about TR they only left out one thing that I think people would be interested in. During his time in South Dakkota he worked briefly as a Lawman and while hunting some outlaws he had a chance encounter with Seth Bullock, the Marshal from Deadwood they became fast friends, a friendship that would last until both of their deaths. When TR became President for the 2nd time Seth brought a Group of his Cowboy friends (including Tom Mix) to his inauguration Ceremony! There is a photo of the group before they headed to Washington hanging in the Bullock Hotel in Deadwood! Seth thought so much of TR that he built him a monument high on a mountain top that still stands today (there is a stairway inside that goes all the way to the top at the time it was situated to where you could see Seths grave on a Mountain top across the way, but the view has since been covered over with Tree growth). Seth passed away a few months after the TRs Monument was finished.
