Origin[edit | edit source]

This bullet was fired from a revolver held by John Flammang Schrank on October 14, 1912. The bullet lodged in Roosevelt's chest only after hitting both his steel eyeglass case and a 50-page copy of his speech he was carrying in his jacket. Roosevelt decided the bullet could not have penetrated to his lung because he coughed no blood and, declining suggestions that he go to the hospital, delivered his scheduled speech. He spoke for ninety minutes, but sometimes managed no more than a whisper.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Mr. Stall was called into a case where a man who had suffered what seemed to be multiple stab wounds to the stomach just got up and walked away, only to later collapse from blood loss after 90 minutes. Luckily the man survived but lost what kept him alive, as it was stolen by the person who tried to kill them. So after being told about the bullet, Mr. Stall tracked the attacker down only to find out he was going to sell it to someone rich who was a big Theodore Roosevelt collector and was looking for the bullet that vanished after being taken out of the president after he (the president) had passed on. Mr. Stall was able to get the bullet and get both men arrested. When he returned to the victim, the man claimed his great-great grandfather was the one who serviced Roosevelt's body, and kept the bullet as a keepsake, but after all the trouble it cause he didn't mind that Mr. Stall said he was taking it away.
