Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site: Birthplace of the Modern Presidency

examines the career of our 26th President—the conditions under which he became a vice presidential candidate, the assassination of President McKinley, the home where TR was hastily inaugurated in 1901, and the influence he exerted on the nation and the presidency. His inauguration marked a turning point in the role of the presidency, launching a change in national policy and propelling the U.S. into world affairs.
