Abraham Lincoln Campaign Stickpin, 1864


The Henry Ford

The Henry Ford
Dearborn, MI, United States

After a gloomy summer of Union defeats and casualty lists, President Lincoln's re-election hopes seemed slim. But, finally, several Union victories gave him the needed public support to win the 1864 election by a landslide. This unusual campaign stickpin holds a ferrotype (or tintype) portrait of Abraham Lincoln.
