Past Political Campaign Passions Still Capture the Interests of Campaign Collectors

Springfield: Collectors from around the nation gathered in Springfield to showcase, trade and buy buttons, pamphlets, and posters of former presidential candidates, governors, and others.

These¬†items still trumpet the now forgotten names of candidates from years past that once were the leaders of their states, or the nation. As we hear from several collectors — keeping campaign materials from long-ago campaigns, is a way of holding history in your hands, and recollecting the passions of issues now past..¬†and the individuals who championed those causes that engaged the nation.
