Who were the Rough Riders and what did they do? Who was their leader?
The Rough Riders helped fight the Battle of San Juan Hill a group of soldiers who fought on horseback during the Spanish-American War. They were led by former White House physician Col. Leonard Wood and future president Theodore Roosevelt.

The most famous of all the units fighting in Cuba, the "Rough Riders" was the name given to the First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry under the leadership of Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt resigned his position as Assistant Secretary of the Navy in May 1898 to join the volunteer cavalry.
