Buttons and Bumper Stickers

Buttons, bumper stickers, cards, and other forms of campaigning have always had a part in America's political history. As a staple of modern day campaigning the bumper sticker became popular in the 1930's. Calvin Coolidge was the first known president candidate to use bumper stickers as part of his campaign.

Buttons date back to George Washington. In his day, buttons were actual buttons on one's coat.
