Theodore Roosevelt posed for this photograph at Montauk, Long Island, shortly before his First Volunteer Cavalry Regiment-which fought in Cuba during the Spanish-American War-was mustered out of service in September 1898. Later, Roosevelt described in a letter how he looked and dressed in the war. Unlike his image here, he said, "In Cuba I did not have the side of my hat turned up."
