Abstract:

Roosevelt became President of the United States when William McKinley was assassinated. He used office as a "bully pulpit" to correct what he perceived as the wrongs of American society. His first battle was to break of the large business trusts, first targeting the railroads. He broke up the railroad trust after many court battles. Next he sided with labor who was fighting for better working conditions and wages in a threatened coal mining strike in 1902. He expanded the power of the nation throughout the world by enlarging the naval fleet, monitored Latin America to prevent European Imperialism, and negotiated with Panama for the construction of the Panama Canal. He was elected for a second term as President of the U.S. in 1904.
