In this room, part of New York State's official memorial to Theodore Roosevelt, aphorisms inscribed on the walls reflect his thoughts on nature, youth, manhood, and the state. A prolific writer, Roosevelt published dozens of books on natural history, American history, his outdoor adventures, and more.
Roosevelt was famous for giving a speech in 1912 with an assassin's bullet in his chest. He told the crowd, "I have just been shot but it takes more than that to kill a bull moose." He went on to speak for an hour and a half.
