Rough Riders DVD

I just want to recommend this outstanding film to everyone. I first watched it back in '97 or '98 when it originally aired on TNT. I picked up the dvd last week and watched it over the weekend, and it still impresses! An outstanding cast headed by Tom Berenger who excels as Theodore Roosevelt! This was a pivotal moment in American history where we became a player on the world stage, and in a few years after the events of the film Roosevelt became the first modern president.

Incidentally, Roosevelt strongly opposed Wilson's neutrality policy regarding WW-1. TR wanted to organize and lead a regiment!
