1912

In 1912 Theodore Roosevelt ran against Hiram Johnson for presidency. Theodore Roosevelt was for the Progessive Republican Party which became nicknamed as the Bull Moose Party because of TR's reference of a bull moose and his health. Then on October 14, Roosevelt was shot in the neck during a speech in Milwaukee, but for an hour and thirty minutes he continued his speech in saying that it takes more than a bulliet, "to kill a Bull Moose".
