This button is in support of Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike)'s campaign for President of the United States, and features his popular campaign slogan. Prior to running for President, Eisenhower served in the military during both World War I and World War II. Eisenhower and and his running mate Richard Nixon ran on the Republican ticket and won in both 1952 and 1956. Their eight years in office are considered by many to be some of the best years of the 20th century. Under Eisenhower, the interstate highway system was created, the quality of life for middle-class Americans improved, and Alaska and Hawaii became the 49th and 50th states.
