On October 14, 1912 while campaigning in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Teddy Roosevelt was shot. The bullet lodged in his chest only after penetrating his steel eyeglass case and passing through a thick 50 page copy of his speech. Roosevelt, as an experienced hunter and anatomist, correctly concluded that since he wasn't coughing blood, the bullet had not completely penetrated the chest wall to his lung, and declined suggestions he go to the hospital immediately. Instead, he delivered his scheduled speech with blood seeping into his shirt. He spoke for 90 minutes.....(taken from wikipedia) NOW THAT IS A MAN!!
