Hero of San Juan Hill

Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, once gave a 90 minute campaign speech after he had been shot in the chest by a would-be assassin. Though the bullet lodged in his chest (where it remained the rest of his life), Roosevelt determined it had not reached his lung, and said to the audience¬†“Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot, but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.”
