In our fourth episode of the Theodore Roosevelt series, Roosevelt returns to Washington, this time as Assistant Secretary of the Navy. But soon after, the United States goes to war with Spain over their occupation of Cuba. Roosevelt thus resigns his post to volunteer in the army and lead a regiment that would come to be known as the “Rough Riders” down to Cuba so that he can finally have his opportunity to experience glory in battle.
