Other Title
Theodore Roosevelt at Fargo, N.D., during Progressive campaign, 1912, 1
As part of a western campaign tour, TR speaks to crowds and firms up Progressive Party structure in the area of Fargo, North Dakota, September 6, 1912. Several views from varying distances of TR greeting and speaking to crowds from rear of train; TR addressing large crowd from a decorated platform, apparently in a stadium; TR speaking from rear of train to Indian men, women, and children assembled on open plains; several long shots of crowds; medium-close silhouette of TR and three men conversing, one of whom appears to be George E. Roosevelt, TR's cousin and campaign secretary in the 1912 election.
