The Rough Riders Monument at Arlington National Cemetery was
erected in 1908 in honor of the members of the First United States
Volunteer Cavalry. Those familiar with American military history will
recall that this regiment, commanded by Theodore Roosevelt, played
a major role in the storming of San Juan Hill, Cuba,
during the Spanish-American War.
