Election Propaganda from Adams to Roosevelt @ Massachusetts Historical Society
Nov 5 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

Explore presidential campaign propaganda from our nation’s first election to twentieth-century battles for the White House. Participants will examine documents and artifacts and discuss different strategies used to appeal to voters during specific campaigns. Using documents from three different centuries, we can investigate the issues that have resonated with Americans over time, and discuss how and why some of these subjects continue to serve as topics of debate in the 2016 election cycle.

This program is open to all educators. Teachers can earn 22.5 PDPs and one graduate credit (for an additional fee).
