DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
Ink signature on a printed card thanking a supporter of his 1956 presidential campaign
Printed Card signed in ink: "Dwight D. Eisenhower", 6¾x4½. Printed text in full: "Please accept my grateful thanks for your personal contribution to the winning of the national election of 1956. You did much, I know, to help assure that the principles and policies for which this administration stands shall be sustained in the conduct of our government with such labor and loyalty as yours, continuing in the years before us, I am confident that we can fulfill the hopes than now have been entrusted to us." Imprinted at top center with gold Presidential seal. In 1952, Eisenhower (1890-1969, born in Denison, Texas) became the fifth General elected President because of his military leadership during wartime (the others were George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor and Ulysses S. Grant). He headed the Allied Invasion of French North Africa (November 1942-May 1943) and directed the Allied Expeditionary Forces that invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944, recaptured France and overcame Germany. Appointed by President Harry S Truman, he served as Chief of Staff of the United States Army from November 19, 1945 to February 7, 1949. Eisenhower's efforts in that capacity included the unification of the armed services under a centralized command and the demobilization of the wartime army. Eisenhower, who accepted the surrender of Germany on May 7, 1945, became a highly respected officer of the U.S. Army, and his popularity carried him into the presidency. Serving as the nation's 34th President from 1953 to 1961, Eisenhower, like Grant, was a graduate of West Point and had held no previous elective office before becoming President. Ironically, Eisenhower and Grant were the only two Republican Presidents to serve two complete four-year terms until Ronald Reagan took office. Extremely popular, "Ike" was the first U.S. President constitutionally ineligible to run for a third term in 1960. Slightly rippled. Lightly stained. Otherwise, fine condition.
