The Attempted Assassination of Theodore Roosevelt
From the Detroit Free Press, Oct. 15, 1912: “The manuscript of his speech doubtless had done much to save his life. When he had come upon the platform at the Auditorium he drew the manuscript from his vest pocket during his first few words, the torn sheets of paper, showing many stains blood, showed also that the bullet had gone through the manuscript.
‘You see,’ cried the colonel holding up the manuscript so that the audience could see the bullet hole through the sheets of paper, ‘It takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.’”
October 14th; truely a manly day in history.
