    Stunning 1840 William Henry Harrison Silk Campaign Ribbon with the images of General Lafayette and George Washington. Harrison was a master campaign strategist: he came up with great slogans; he made the common folk believe that he was one of them; and he associated himself with popular past figures such as Washington, Lafayette, and his Declaration-signing father. "In honor of the Founders and Defenders of American Independence" is printed beneath an attractive vignette and above the portraits of Washington, Lafayette, and Harrison. It's interesting to note that this ribbon features a portion of the lyrics to the "Star-Spangled Banner," many years before it became our national anthem. In choice condition save for two tiny soiled areas, and a small imperfection in the selvage at the very top. 2.875" x 8.25".
