Almanac of Theodore Roosevelt

"Banish brutality, envy, greed, hatred—banish them all; and banish with them all forms of emotional hysteria. We need cool-headed, sane common sense in dealing with the problems that confront the nation, just as we need it in dealing each with the problems that confront him or her in his or her own household."

- T.R. speech in Ogden, Utah on 29 May 1903

On February 11, 1863, Ulysses S. Grant wrote from near Vicksburg to his wife Julia, lamenting: "I met with a great loss this morning. Last night, contrary to my usual habit, I took out my teeth and put them in the wash bason and covered them with water. This morning the servant who attends to my stateroom, blacks my boots &c, come in about daylight and finding water in the bason threw it out into the river teeth and all."

This is not the only documented time that Grant lost his teeth over the side of a boat -- does anyone out there know the other instance of Grant's teeth meeting a watery grave?

15 February 1898: 28 Marines and 232 seamen lost their lives when the battleship MAINE was mysteriously sunk by an explosion in the harbor of Havana, Cuba. Though no definitive evidence linked the Spanish with the sinking, the cry went up, "Remember the Maine!", and by late April the U.S. and Spain were at war.

Yesterday, we shared a photo of Charles Davenport, who was blinded by a wound at Chancellorsville. His wound affected not only Charles' future, but also that of those he had left behind at home, including Sara Jane Lyon, shown here. Like many girls in the South, 17-year-old Sara must have shed tears when her boyfriend, Charlie Davenport, left Louisiana to fight in the Confederate army. When he returned home two years later he was blind, having been shot through the head. Sara married him nonetheless, and they ultimately raised a family of seven children—all girls. (bp)

Morris-Jumel Mansion

Located in Washington Heights the Morris-Jumel Mansion was built in 1765 in the Palladian style. British Col. Roger Morris and his American wife, Mary Philipse lived in the house for 11 years before the American Revolution but were forced to flee to England soon after it began. During the fall of 1776, the mansion became the headquarters for Gen. George Washington and his army during the Battle of Long Island. After the Battle of Harlem Heights, Washington and his troops retreated and left the house to be occupied by British Gen. Henry Clinton. The Morris-Jumel Mansion would not appear again in presidential history until 1790 when Washington (now president) hosted a dinner for his cabinet, including John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and Henry Knox. The Mansion was purchased by Steven Jumel and his wife Eliza in 1810 and remained in their position until 1865. In 1903 the house was bought by New York City and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961.

Introducing...The Abe App!

Today Abraham Lincoln got a birthday present that everyone can enjoy: his own smartphone application!

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, along with AT&T, officially launched its new “Abe App” today – Lincoln’s 204th birthday. The app lets everyone explore Lincoln facts, quiz themselves about his life, peruse pictures of his presidential museum and more.

“President Lincoln was for the most part, a self-taught man, who loved to learn. He had an insatiable curiosity and wide ranging interests. The Abe App gives users a fun, interesting and meaningful way to learn about our 16th president using today’s technology,” said Carla Knorowski, chief executive officer of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation. “Through the Abe App, we share every aspect of the man from his boyhood to the Presidency –from little known facts like his favorite meal to the well-known like his views on slavery.”

The power of wireless broadband technology is changing the world. The ‘Abe App’ is where history meets technology to spread the story of Abraham Lincoln. Now people of all ages can use a smartphone or tablet to access this free app to learn more about President Lincoln and his important life,” said Paul La Schiazza, President, AT&T Illinois.

The Abe App was developed by EDA-Soft Mobile Solutions. In addition to the fact of the day and the Lincoln quiz, it includes pictures of the Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library, a link to the museum’s gift shop, information on contributing to the foundation and contact information.

It was on this day in 1857 that Ulysses S. Grant wrote a letter to his father to ask for a loan of $500 for two years to help support his farming activities at White Haven. Jesse Grant was a well-to-do tanner based at this time in Covington, Kentucky. In this letter, Grant wrote, "[T]here is no one els to whom I could, with the same propriety, apply. It is always usual for parents to give their children assistince in beginning life (and I am only beginning, though thirty five years of age, nearly), and what I ask is not much." Grant went on to say, "The fact is, without means, it is useless for me to go on farming... I have worked hard and got but little, and expect to go on the same way until I am perfectly independent..." He said that without assistance from his father, he and Colonel Dent would be compelled to "sell the farm and invest elsewhere."

There is no evidence this letter was ever answered. Grant and his father had often had a rocky relationship, and this and other letters Grant wrote (often with a request for a loan) reveal tension between father and son.
