    Description

    William Henry Harrison: Silk Campaign Ribbon.
    Graphic ribbon with the images of General Lafayette and George Washington above Harrison. Harrison was a master campaign strategist, and 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. The piece references a portion of the lyrics to the "Star-Spangled Banner" many years before it became our national anthem. It is interesting to note the overprint at the top to the Battle of Yorktown. On October 19, 1781 the British surrendered at Yorktown. Measures 2 .75" x 10", excellent.
