Teddy Roosevelt War Club
More than 30 years ago, while tearing the aluminum roofing from a farm house, a Chicago man discovered an oddly carved piece of wood in the dark recesses of the attic.
It is about three and a half feet long, two inches around with a faint inscription weathered by time. The wording that remains reads: Bull Moose War Club – From the Green Mountains near the City of Rutland, VT, and to the Great Chief Teddy Roosevelt, Aug. 29, ’12.
History Detectives heads to New England to find out who, if anyone, gave this club to Teddy Roosevelt.
