Book Excerpt

Campaigning across the map for countless hours of hand slapping and back patting to woo the American people, promising this or that, whatever helps to get the vote. Each state has its own memories of the campaign trail, and each state has a reason to hold on to those memories. The state of Nebraska is no different, since the territories birth into statehood in March of 1867; Nebraska has had Presidential campaign visits and great speeches given in her many communities. For 150 years Presidential hopefuls have come to plead their cases to the voting population of Nebraskan citizens. From Abraham Lincoln's first visit to Omaha in 1859, to Jimmy Carter's stop in Grand Island in 1980, and George W Bush's many stops in Omaha. We have stories to tell and great historical insight to gain by understanding the history of Presidential travels to Nebraska.
