Abstract

This work is based on Theodore Roosevelt, the late President of the United States, and his Rough Riders First Volunteer Cavalry in their legendary battle fought on San Juan Hill. The first part will be devoted to a historical foundation that will firstly illuminate the course and meaning of the Spanish-American War of 1898 and then give a brief overview of the life of Theodore Roosevelt, whose nickname Teddy symbolizes the artificial projection of a natural animal ideal of manhood stands. Building on this, the second part is made using letters from Theodore Roosevelt, which reflect his view of the battle on San Juan Hill and the people involved in it; the perspective on the concept of manhood of the epoch can be analyzed situationally and locally. The concluding third section will sharpen the analysis and generally more closely approach his concept of manhood for US society. (Author)
