Theodore Roosevelt

I visited Teddy Roosevelt's grave at Young's Memorial Cemetery in Oyster Bay, New York on March 9, 1999. It is a short distance from Sagamore Hill.

The experience gave me my first cemetery break-in. The sign in front of the graveyard said it opened at noon, (it was a Sunday) and we were there at 12:15, but the gate was still locked. My friend, Joe, and I went around the side of the cemetery and jumped the fence. Although there was some snow on the ground, it didn't take long to find Teddy's grave. It's not a very big cemetery. When we left, we had to jump the fence to get out.
