Fun Fact: Teddy Roosevelt’s Maternal Family

Fun facts about teddy Roosevelt

President Theodore Roosevelt’s father Theodore Roosevelt Sr. was very pro-union during the Civil War, despite never serving a day in the military. He hired another man to take his place (which was legal at the time) which would have seemed cowardly without knowing his at-home situation. He most likely never joined the war to avoid a massive conflict with his wife Martha Bulloch. She was a southern belle who had brothers fighting for the Confederacy and she was deeply worried for their safety.
