Mittie & Thee: An 1853 Romance North met South—an enduring love affair began—the birth of a President resulted. This 1853 story, told through one year of courtship letters between New York City’s Theodore Roosevelt (Senior) and Miss Mittie Bulloch of Georgia, echoes through time. Her heritage is one of patriotism, education, and Southern social standing. He is the fifth son of a wealthy New York City businessman of Dutch heritage. Their 1853 courtship conducted though letters gives the reader an intimate peek into their personal love story.
Between the Wedding and the War Between the Wedding and the War continues the true saga of two families, the northern Roosevelts and the southern Bullochs. For seven years letters flowed between the Bulloch and Roosevelt families capturing a poignant time of upheaval foreshadowed by war. The letters tell of births, deaths, love, religion, and business and follow Martha Bulloch and two of her remaining unwed children North. While stories of family journeys convey the spirit of America’s expansion and growth, stories about the home front reveal two different cultures. In the midst of it all, a president is born.
