about this item

The Carnival Campaign tells the fascinating story of the pivotal 1840 presidential campaign of General William Henry Harrison and John Tyler—“Tippecanoe and Tyler Too.” Pulitzer Prize–nominated formerWall Street Journal reporter Ron Shafer relates in a colorful, entertaining style how the campaign marked a series of “firsts” that changed politicking forever: the first campaign as mass entertainment; the first “image campaign,” in which strategists portrayed Harrison as a poor man living in a log cabin sipping hard cider (he lived in a mansion and drank only sweet cider); the first time big money was a factor; the first time women could openly participate; and more. While today’s electorate has come to view campaigns that emphasize style over substance as a matter of course, this book shows voters how it all began.
