Ribbon promoting Millard Fillmore for president, 1856. Printed silk. Central portrait of Fillmore; above, FOR PRESIDENT/ MILLARD FILLMORE.; below, FOR VICE-PRESIDENT ANDREW J. DONELSON, and quotation of Fillmore, "If there be those...who desire an administration for the North as agains the South, or for the South as against the North, they are not the men who should give their suffrages to me. For my own part, I know only my country, my whole country, and nothing but my country."
The classic ribbon for the former Whig president who ran on the American, or "Know Nothing" ticket in 1856. Exceptionally clean example.
