Additional Information: 

Dwight D. Eisenhower was the 34th president, serving from 1953-1961. Before his election he was a soldier in WWI and a general, leading forces in WWII. He used his reputation of military strength during his presidency to secure a truce between the US and Korea, ending the Korean War in 1953. Eisenhower also eased tensions in the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union. His 1952 and 1956 campaign slogan "I Like Ike!" gained rapid popularity and he won both his election and reelection handily.
