Description

A 9-page version of a remarkable "lost" story featuring one of our most popular presidents. With lesson plan.

A regiment of black soldiers is unfairly dismissed by Teddy Roosevelt. Sixty years later, a freelance writer (John D. Weaver) uncovers the story. The U.S. Army issues a full apology. A rich and ironic story that resonates in current times.

A challenging case in empire and literature for advanced high school students.

This is an important slice of the American past that was previously obscure to all but serious scholars.”

-- ED RENEHAN, Executive Director of the Theodore Roosevelt Association.

“I’ve always thought the story of the Brownsville Affray one of the best ‘lost’ stories in American history. And the 60-years-after-the-fact redemption … is a terrific punchline. You’ve got a great subject.”

-- Patricia O’Toole, When Trumpets Call
