While many of our founding fathers disdained political campaigning it did not take long before campaigns including speeches, slogans, and songs became an important part of the American experience. Georgia was no exception and throughout its history many memorable campaigns have been run, won, and lost. This collection highlights the material produced during some of these campaigns from the ubiquitous buttons and bumper stickers to unique items such as a bag of "government" pork rinds.
