In 1898 the US government decided to intervene on the side of the Cuban rebels in their struggle against Spanish rule. Assistant Navy Secretary Theodore Roosevelt decides to experience the war first hand by promoting and joining a volunteer cavalry regiment. The regiment, later known as the Rough Riders, brings together volunteers from all corners of the nation and all walks of life. When Roosevelt and his men finally land on Cuba, they face ambush, intense enemy fire, and a desperate, outnumbered charge up a defended hill. Written by

At the press conference while the Rough Riders are training in San Antonio, Roosevelt lists a sampling of the civilian occupations of the troopers and mentions "one man, whom I'm sorry to say, used to work for the Internal Revenue Service." In 1898 the agency was known as either the Bureau of Internal Revenue or the Federal Revenue Service, and Roosevelt's actual quote referred to "the Federal Revenue Service". The name Internal Revenue Service did not come into use until around 1918, and the three names were used interchangeably from 1918 until the name Internal Revenue Service became the sole official name in 1953.

Tom Berenger was a great Teddy Roosevelt. It just shows his talents as an actor. The background research on the history was done and the locations were chosen wisely. Unfortunately this movie has not been put on DVD and was not receive wide publicity, so it was overlooked. In addition most of our youth today don't even remember the history beyond last week. I would have liked to see more of the relationship that Teddy had with his men. It's also a fact that many of his Rough Riders did not get to go to Cuba for lack of space on the ships. They wept at the thought of being left behind. At the mustering out - Teddy was presented gifts by his men and he said I'll never forget you. I think these items were overlooked in the movie.
