Following vast protests and the toppling of dozens of statues across the nation, the American Museum of Natural History announced this weekend that they would be taking down the statue of Teddy Roosevelt in the name of social justice. 

 

Teddy Roosevelt supporter Frank Scurlock, heir to the bounce-house fortune, has announced a rally to save the statue and has offered $1 million to purchase the statue if it was to be taken down. Scurlock announced a rally of local residents this week.

Scurlock says taking down this iconic monument defames the legacy of Teddy Roosevelt and believes that the history of our first environmentalist president should be preserved for future generations to learn from.
