Bully! Teddy Roosevelt Rides Again!

October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
History Pub Speaker Series presents; “Bully! Teddy Roosevelt Rides Again!”
Mark Twain has actor Hal Holbrook to accurately impersonate him; President Theodore Roosevelt has Joe Wiegand! This performance will convincingly turn the clock back to TR’s presidency (1902-1909), the end of the Gilded Age  and emergence of the Progressive Era, and America’s emergence on the world stage. This is no static lecture; Wiegand works the audience, asking and answering questions of national and international import, and finally, auctions off a namesake Teddy bear. Roosevelt was one of the most popular presidents in American history and this performance is assured to be a memorable audience experience. Come enjoy Ninkasi select beverages and Smokin’ Vinnies BBQ .
The History Pub Speaker Series is a joint effort by the Lane County History Museum and the University of Oregon Department of History. Joe This program is made possible by the support of the Oregon Historical Society.
