William Henry Harrison was the ninth President of the United States and took office in 1941. The election of 1840 was considered by many to be the first real presidential campaign (at least in modern terms). Harrison had a (inaccurate) reputation for being a country man who lived in a log cabin and liked to drink. There are a large variety of campaign button designs from this election. These are two piece buttons, and many bear the log cabin motif. William Henry Harrison supporters wore these buttons sewn onto their lapel, which gave rise to what we now as a pinback campaign button. Some buttons have a picture of Harrison on them. Brooches and ribbons were also made for this campaign, many showing a log cabin. Letters written by William Henry Harrison, or "Tippecanoe", are relatively uncommon. There are very few signatures from his Presidency available because it was so short - Harrison fell ill and died mere weeks after his inauguration.William Henry Harrison Presidential China Signature
Letters written by William Henry Harrison, or \"Tippecanoe\" are relatively uncommon. Some of his letters are written by secretaries, while more latter letters were written personally. There are very few signatures from his Presidency available because it was so short - Harrison fell ill and died mere weeks after his inauguration. Harrison signed letters using both his full name and the initials “Wm. H. Harrison”.
