A Thanksgiving Truce

“A Thanksgiving Truce” first appeared in the November 22, 1905 issue of Puck. President Theodore Roosevelt, shown here in his “Rough Rider” uniform, was an animal lover as well as an avid hunter, hence the Bear’s toast “(with deep feeling), ‘Here’s hoping that when next we meet, we see you first.'”

Roosevelt was one of our nation’s foremost conservationists. During his Presidency, he was the first to create National Forests, National Parks, National Game Preserves and much more.
