Undersecretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt resigns to form a volunteer militia unit called "The Rough Riders" to fight in the Spanish-American War.
The movie is dedicated "In Memory of Brian Keith: Actor, Marine, Raconteur 1921-1997".
I miss you, boys. Been more that twenty years. My God, we were young. Well, it was a young country then, full of promise and hope. Anything was possible then if you were an American.
At the press conference while the Rough Riders are training in San Antonio, Roosevelt lists a sampling of the civilian occupations of the troopers and mentions "one man, whom I'm sorry to say, used to work for the Internal Revenue Service." In 1898 the agency was known as either the Bureau of Internal Revenue or the Federal Revenue Service, and Roosevelt's actual quote referred to "the Federal Revenue Service". The name Internal Revenue Service did not come into use until around 1918, and the three names were used interchangeably from 1918 until the name Internal Revenue Service became the sole official name in 1953.
