What if you could meet President Theodore Roosevelt and learn about the famous hunt he and Holt Collier undertook that gave rise to the “Teddy Bear”?

This program, led by living history interpreter Case Hicks, will follow our 26th president from the Washington White House to the Mississippi Delta. 

Hear engaging stories of his life – including tales about several of his trips to the Delta – and learn about  the results of the hunt for conservation-minded citizens.

There will be a Q & A session with Mr. Hicks after the 40-minute program.

Included with museum admission. Group rates available for educational groups.
