The 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment “Rough Riders”, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation formed for the purpose of creating a perpetuating and living memorial to the unique accomplishments of President Theodore Roosevelt and the members of his famous volunteer cavalry regiment, known as the Rough Riders. The Rough Riders played an instrumental role in the Spanish-American War when they sailed with Colonel Roosevelt from Tampa, to liberate Cuba from Spain.

It is the intent of the members of the Rough Riders to keep the Rough Riders great moments in history alive. We do this by providing activities that educate people about history and keeping our Spanish-American War Monuments intact. The Tampa Bay Rough Riders also take pride in their never-ending work for local charities and children’s groups.
One of the most noted Rough Rider charitable efforts would be our famous Teddy Bear Runs. The Teddy Bear was named in honor of President Roosevelt.
The Rough Riders also provide time and financial assistance to many through college scholarships, academic achievement awards, home restorations, improvements in surroundings for those in our community who are physically challenged, and the restoration work on many Rough Rider related monuments including those located on Egmont Key.

The Rough Riders also take part in cemetery re-dedications for fallen soldiers.

Does anyone have a listing of those serving in the rough riders? I believe my great uncle served in this and later went in WWl. His name was Tom Collier out of Wauchula. He was said to have been as mean as a snake and had an invisible punch. He received a dosage of phosgene gas in WWI and they said it didn't help his disposition. He died from liver disease at 43. Said he drained his swelling by sticking his fruit knife in his side. Please send me anything you find. Thank you. Jim Davis

February 10, 1896 - After losing the eastern part of Cuba to the revolutionaries and witnessing the outbreak of insurrection in the western provinces, Spanish Army General Arsenio Martínez-Campos y Antón is replaced as Governor of Cuba by General Valeriano Weyler, 1st Duke of Rubí. Weyler begins a policy of recontratación ("reconcentration"), in which the people in rebel-held areas are rounded up and placed in concentration camps. Weyler brings with him more than 200,000 Spanish Army troops, and organizes 50,000 peninsulars and Cubans into a pro-Spanish militia. About 400,000 people are placed in concentration camps with little provision made for food, housing, clothing, sanitation, and medical care, and the local economy collapses in areas where the camps are created. Tens of thousands of Cubans starve to death or die from disease. ... See MoreSee Less

1899 - Aftermath of the Spanish-American War

February 6, 1899 - The United States Senate ratifies the Treaty of Paris by a close vote of 57 to 27. (A two-thirds majority, or 56 votes, was needed to ratify.) An amendment requiring the United States to give the Philippines its independence fails after Vice President Garret Hobart casts the deciding vote against it. The Senate might have declined to ratify the treaty, but the outbreak of hostilities in Manila turns the tide of feeling in the treaty's favor.
