Teddy Roosevelt Approaching Chicago, 1912 Republican National Convention, Part 1: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, July 1912, Part 0.1
All this week, our Election Year coverage will focus on the 100th anniversary of the historic 1912 Republican National Convention, requiring a week-long raid into the July 1912 issue of Cartoons Magazine. Today features the heralded approach of Teddy Roosevelt, to the 1912 Chicago Convention.
Above, on his way to Chicago, Roosevelt decided to give a speech in Gettysburg, inspiring cartoonists Oscar Cesare, Alfred West Brewerton, and Cy Hungerford, to some non-complimentary comparisons of the insurgent T.R. to Party spiritual founder, Abraham Lincoln (sans vampire slaying).
