Silk ribbon entitled ''Democratic National Badge'', worn by pro-Texas supporters of the Democratic ticket during the 1844 Presidential campaign. Cleaved by the issue of Texas annexation, the 1844 Presidential election was contested between the Democratic ticket of James Polk and the Whig ticket of Henry Clay. Polk of course, won the election and Texas was soon annexed two years later. Cream silk ribbon reads ''TEXAS'' under a symbol of the lone star with Polk and VP George Dallas' names framing an image of Thomas Jefferson, with previous Democratic Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren also mentioned. An eagle holds a banner in its beak reading, ''Union, Harmony and Vigilance''. Measures 3'' x 7''. Light soiling and a few very small holes, overall very good condition.
