1905 Theodore Roosevelt

For his 1905 inaugural ceremony, Theodore Roosevelt wore a ring containing a lock of Abraham Lincoln’s hair.  The ring was borrowed from Secretary of State John Hay who had served as Lincoln’s personal secretary some 40 years earlier. More than 35,000 celebrants marched in the ensuing parade, from coal miners, cowboys, Native Americans, and African-American cavalry troops, to Roosevelt’s old Spanish-American War regiment, the Rough Riders.
