Zoom series to feature Teddy Roosevelt’s tales of American heroism

Short sessions to highlight chapters of Roosevelt's book

 Before he was president, before he even charged up San Juan Hill, Teddy Roosevelt co-wrote a book about American heroes. Joe Long, curator of education at the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum, has always loved the book, and has decided to share that enjoyment with the public. Starting Sept. 3 at 9 a.m., he will deliver short lectures via Zoom focusing on one chapter at a time of “Hero Tales From American History,” which Roosevelt wrote with Henry Cabot Lodge in 1891. Joe’s series of mini-lectures is called “Heroes on Zoom.” The book features 26 different stories, each only five or six pages, that run chronologically through American history up to that time. It starts with George Washington and ends with Abraham Lincoln. In between, it covers such topics as the Revolution, Daniel Boone, the War of 1812 and the Alamo. There are a “goodly number of battles,” Joe says, but also stories about President John Quincy Adams and artist Francis Parkman.
