Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States, and led a diverse life. He held office in city, state and federal circles before becoming president. Roosevelt served as a soldier in the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War. He temporarily left politics for the Dakota badlands, cementing his love for nature and giving him the idea that national parks were important, which he created many of. Roosevelt was well liked for his fair treatment of citizens and his elimination of trusts and monopolies. Roosevelt was known for being an outdoorsman and a hunter in his spare time.

After his second term, he left for Africa on a hunting expedition and tried to rerun for president. At this time, he founded and led the short-lived Bull Moose political party, where he survived an assassination attempt. He lost the election, and afterwards made an expedition to the Amazon region. He is consistently ranked one of the best presidents in American history and is one of four presidents carved into Mount Rushmore today. Decades later, Roosevelt's still-surviving hunting rifle would later appear in the Movie Night at the Museum, and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.


The rifle is the one used on his great African Safari. Any bullet shot by the rifle that lands on a form of taxidermy will bring the creature in question to life. The re-animated beasts will be incredibly savage and aggressive, though they will avoid the holder of the rifle out of what appears to be fear.

As the animals are made of skin, sand and wire, they are immune to all biological compulsions, poisons and mental effects and if destroyed, will slowly restore themselves.
