In February 1902, Roosevelt’s attorney general filed suit against Northern Securities.  It was a risk, and a big one; there was no legal precedent for what Roosevelt was doing, and no guarantee he would succeed.  If he failed, it might embolden big business even more.

 

J.P. Morgan was informed of the suit while enjoying a sumptuous dinner with friends; infuriated by the news, he sought an audience with Roosevelt himself.  “If we have done anything wrong, send your man to my man and they can fix it up,” Morgan told Attorney General Philander Knox.  “We don’t want to fix it up…we want to stop it,” was Knox’s acid reply.
