The story begins in 1898, the year Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders boarded ships in Tampa Harbor for Cuba to fight in America's short war with Spain. That same year, officials of the young John B. Stetson University in DeLand, Florida, considered starting a law program. With encouragement from lawyers and jurists, they did so, and the school's doors opened in the fall of 1900 with five white male students.
