He is the tritagonist of Night at the Museum, a noteworthy character in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, and the deuterogamist of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

Teddy was born on October 27, 1858, in New York City, on Twentieth Street. His folks were well off, yet Teddy was delicate and experienced asthma. His folks urged him to get solid by enjoying sports, such as boxing.  His mother went for him out on strolls. Once they needed to make tracks in an opposite direction from contamination and fled into the Catskill Mountains. He got into legislative issues in 1880, after graduation from Harvard.

He turned into a republican. He wedded twice. Disaster struck in 1884, 4 years after he graduated: on Valentine’s Day, his significant other kicked the bucket in the wake of bringing forth their first girl, and his mom passed around the same time. Crushed, he fled New York and left his little girl behind.

He fled to Medora, North Dakota, and turned into a cows farmer. Having discovered harmony, he returned to New York, and dealt with his little girl, Alice. Also, he wedded once more, this time, one of his neighbors. With this, he dealt with 6 youngsters, Alice, Theodore, Jr., Kermit, Archibald, Ethel, and Quentin.

He progressed toward becoming VP to William McKinley in 1900. McKinley was assassinated in Buffalo, New York, in September 1901. Roosevelt was likewise a police commissioner, and governed of New York. He took the administration in 1901, soon after McKinley’s assassination. He was a colonel, who battled for the United States Veterans (USV) in the Battle of San Juan Hill in 1898.

Serving two terms, he lost to William Howard Taft in 1909. On October 14, 1912 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, only 13 days before his 54th birthday celebration, Roosevelt was shot by John Schrank.

The punishment that ensued fitted the crime, and I hope-and believe-that it did me good.”
