"I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose."
—Theodore Roosevelt, Oct. 14, 1912
On this day in 1912, Theodore Roosevelt was shot in Milwaukee; the bullet tore through his overcoat, pierced the manuscript of his speech, flattened his steel spectacle case, and drove into his chest. Despite his wound, Roosevelt still insisted on making his scheduled speech.
Like a boss.
