Friday Feature: Teddy Roosevelt Riding the Presidential Moose

President Roosevelt rides atop a large moose which is swimming across a body of water.

When the president rides it, it becomes a presidential moose. Copyright Time Magazine, 1900.

Teddy Roosevelt, well-known as a sportsman later in life, actually started with a frail and sickly childhood. He developed a proclivity for exercise and the "strenuous life" as a teenager.

Throughout his adult life, Roosevelt was a keen traveller and sportsman. Read more about his unique life in the American President essay.

Stay tuned! Every Friday we'll highlight a whimsical item from presidential history.
