Theodore Roosevelt Speech at Milwaukee, Wisconsin Theodore Roosevelt was shot in the chest while campaigning for president in 1912 as a Bull Moose candidate. The bullet pierced his overcoat and several objects in his breast pocket, including a fifty-page speech from which this page was taken. Although wounded, Roosevelt insisted on making his speech. After opening his coat to show the crowd his bloody shirt, he triumphantly shrieked: "It takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose!"
