The President Who Transformed the Federal Government

The history of a man is defined by his actions and his actions by the choices that he makes. What if by our choices, we could potentially change the destiny of our lives and our country? Such was the legacy of President Theodore Roosevelt. At age 42, President Roosevelt became the youngest man to assume the U.S. presidency after the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901.

Consequently, his efforts sparked a revolution which ultimately led to Panama gaining independence from Columbia.
