In his 1904 re-election campaign, Roosevelt won by the largest popular vote majority ever received by any presidential candidate. He’s known for many accomplishments, including the Panama Canal, National Forest Programs, and the Food and Drug Act. In 1902, Roosevelt attended a bear hunt in Mississippi, where a bear was tracked, clubbed, and tied up. He was appalled at the treatment of the bear and refused to allow anyone to claim it. A cartoon of this story became wildly popular, and “Teddy's Bear” became a nationwide legend.
