Description:
A photo of the Abraham Lincoln-Hannibel Hamlin campaign button for the 1860 presidential election.

Born in 1809, he was about 51 years of age at the time this photo was taken. While we remember him as having a beard, he only grew the beard shortly before he was elected. On slavery, he said "Whenever I hear anyone arguing over slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."

For Presidents Day - 1860 Lincoln campaign button. His philosophy: “When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.”
