Before political candidates had access to television and radio, they got their message out through other media. Political buttons, banners, ribbons, and posters rallied support for a particular candidate or for a slate of candidates representing a given party. This ticket was a convenient way to remind voters of the Republican candidates running for office in Massachusetts in 1862. Listed are both state offices, such as Governor and Attorney General, and regional offices such as State Senator for the Fifth District.
