Plot Summary

In 1898, the U.S. 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.

Trivia Besides being a feared and well-respected lawman, Bucky O'Neill had also been an Indian scout and the Mayor of Prescott, Arizona, as well as a self-educated, very well-read and multi-lingual man (speaking French, Spanish, and several Indian languages). He and Roosevelt became fast friends and spent much of their time in the campaign discussing military history, Indian customs, and classic European literature. See more »
