Buttons, signs & slogans

Description

The handmade signs carried during marches, demonstrations and conventions were integral to the success of the movement. While some express very personal issues or opinions, others were scripted by the cause. Buttons were an inexpensive way to spread slogans and allow supporters to display their views.
