When still a young composer, Wenrich often wrote music for political rallies and conventions. His early experience is shown in this mature march reflecting his ease in this genre. Roosevelt March is a tribute to the 26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and his accomplishments. Roosevelt was famous for raising a voluntary cavalry of cowboys and college athletes (Roosevelt's Rough Riders); and its action at San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War. He served as President from 1901 to 1909 and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for mediating the end of the Russo-Japanese War.
