Woodrow Wilson campaign buttons were produced between 1912 and 1916. As President of Princeton University and Governor of New Jersey, Woodrow Wilson (1856 – 1924) was the Democratic presidential nominee in 1912 and 1916.
In 1912, former President Theodore Roosevelt ran again on the Progressive (Bull Moose) ticket, thus splitting the Republican vote and allowing a Wilson victory.
Running for re-election in 1916, Wilson pledged to keep the country out of European wars. German attacks on U. S. shipping made keeping that promise impossible and the United States joined the Allies in the First World War. During his second term in 1919, Wilson suffered a debilitating stroke, leaving him bedridden. His wife Edith stepped in and quietly performed many presidential duties on his behalf.
Woodrow Wilson’s campaign buttons are a great way to learn about history while investing in something that will increases in value for generations to come.
