Joe Wiegand as Theodore Roosevelt will deliver a salute to the president he most admired.

Bush in the East Room of the White House in 2008 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Teddy’s birth. After delighting a packed house at the National Archives as one of the four Mount Rushmore Presidents during President’s Week in February, 2017, Joe returns to Washington for the 50th anniversary of the National Park at Theodore Roosevelt Island in the Potomac River. He is a historian, writer, and interpreter of Teddy’s life and times.
