This event has ended.

The New-York Historical Society will mark the occasion of the upcoming November elections with an installation that surveys the history of American presidential elections through the lens of campaign ephemera and other items of material culture. A wide spectrum of 19th and 20th century presidential campaign memorabilia from the Society's Museum will be displayed, including lapel buttons, parade lanterns, ribbons, flags, banners, whiskey bottles, neckties, thimbles, handkerchiefs and bandanas, board games, hats worn by the candidates, and a dress worn by an Eisenhower supporter in 1956.
