A complete and authentic issue of The Log Cabin, May 2, 1840, 4pp., disbound, VG. This first issue promotes the Harrison & Tyler presidential campaign begining with a front page, 6” x 5” engraving of William H. Harrison. Then from the interior, a political cartoon “The Old Dominion Redeemed” claiming that Harrison delegates will “cast off the shackles of Van Burenism”. As expected, numorous reports of the strenth of Harrison. The Whig campaign of 1840 against incumbent President Martin Van Buren established a pattern of predetermined imagery, from which later campaigns have seldom deviated. The Whigs adopted the symbols of the log cabin and hard cider to promote the candidacy of General William Henry Harrison. An outpouring of objects with designs of log cabins, such as this newspaper from July 18, 1840, soon followed.
