If you live in the United States and watch television you may have caught part or all of the 14-hour series The Roosevelts on PBS. It told the life stories of three prominent members of the family, Presidents Theodore and Franklin Delano and Franklin's wife Eleanor. Theodore, or Teddy as he was more commonly known, had a long history with the state of North Dakota, where I grew up. Just 60 miles from my childhood home, in the city of Minot, the largest park is known as Roosevelt Park, named in honor of Teddy.
There is a large statue of Teddy in his Rough Rider uniform and once back in the 40's or 50's, my family's camera caught me paying a visit.
