The pivotal 1840 presidential campaign of William Henry "Old Tippecanoe" Harrison and John Tyler marked a series of firsts that changed presidential politicking forever, right up to the 2016 election. This was the first campaign as mass entertainment, the first "image" campaign, the first campaign involving women and the first to include big-time money donations. It also created the most famous campaign slogan in history about two candidates who were born in nearby Charles City County.
