Joe: the whole building?

On another note, I think I remember that TR had a Union army ancestor? Was it his father?

Bill,
TR's father was an ardent supporter of Lincoln and the Union, but did not serve in the miitary. TR's mother was a Bulloch from Georgia and she was a Confederate sympathizer--bit nothing traitorous. The Bullochs served in the Confederate military--primarily in the navy and one of them was instrumental in getting the CSS Alabama built and launched. Can you imagine what the media and political ad gurus would do with that today?!
The house was a four-story brownstone and quite large.
Joe
