Late in his life, Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, said "No man has had a happier life than I have led. . . a happier life in every way."

One of his greatest sources of happiness was his family. In this picture, you see Roosevelt with his second wife, Edith, and their five children, Theodore Jr., Kermit, Ethel, Archie, and Quentin. Alice, Roosevelt's daughter from his first wife, is also in the picture. As president, Roosevelt was responsible for the construction of the Panama Canal and increasing the number of national parks and national forests. He won the Nobel Peace Prize for mediating the Russo-Japanese War.
