Renovation of Sagamore Hill brings portion of Theodore Roosevelt's private collection to the National Firearms Museum

Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders hat at the National Firearms Museum

There's something special at the NRA on Presidents Day.

Above is the iconic hat worn by the Rough Riders — a group of cowboys, prospectors and hunters from the American southwest who answered President McKinley's call for volunteers to serve in the Spanish-American War. As a matter of fact, it's the hat worn by Teddy Roosevelt. While Roosevelt's home (known as Sagamore Hill) is under renovation, that hat and more will reside here at the National Firearms Museum.
