Description
By the late 19th century, symbols of home and family life had become mainstays of American political culture. The home became a setting in which the policies of the major parties and their presidential candidates played out. This pamphlet from Eisenhower’s 1952 presidential campaign suggests that voting for Eisenhower will “sweep out the mess” of government.
