General William Henry Harrison, Campaign Banner
This lithograph was a campaign poster for then-presidential candidate and future president William Henry Harrison. It was created by George Endicott in New York around 1840. The center image shows Harrison in full military regalia sitting on horseback. The twelve images surrounding the center image are scenes from Harrison's military career, home life in Ohio, and political service. The log cabin image, which symbolized the candidate's working class credentials, was popular during the campaign, although not an accurate reflection of the Virginia native's affluent childhood.
