The Miami Valley Veterans Museum will be hosting “A Night with Theodore Roosevelt” on Saturday March 5th, 2011 from 5pm-7pm, as we will be welcoming Larry Marple. Larry has been a professional educator for over 20 years in the public school system and has been actively involved in living history and reenactments for over 25 years.
Larry will be portraying Theodore Roosevelt when he and the Rough Riders (1st US Volunteer Cavalry) made the famous charges up Kettle Hill and the San Juan Heights on July 1, 1898. Listen how he describes how the Rough Riders were formed, what life was like with the Rough Riders, and what the Rough Riders endured and accomplished. We will also be able to look at some Roosevelt memorabilia, and at the end of the program he will discuss what happened to Theodore Roosevelt after being Colonel of the Rough Riders.
Take a journey back in time and hear about one of our Nation’s greatest heroes. After the Theodore Roosevelt presentation there will be light refreshments and the Museum will remain open until 9pm.
