Theodore Roosevelt is revered for his conflict resolution skills. No other incident further exemplifies these skills than his settling of the Portsmouth Treaty during the Russo-Japanese War over Manchuria and Korea, for which Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He was the first American to be awarded any Nobel Prize.
