Mitt Romney holds up a placard at a pro-draft demonstration at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, in May 1966. Romney's status as a Mormon missionary meant he was exempt from the draft. "Mitt Romney, son of Michigan Gov. George Romney, was one of the pickets who supported the Standford University administration today in opposition to sit-in demonstrators."
The 1880 presidential election saw Ohioan James A. Garfield and his running mate, Chester A. Arthur, defeat Civil War General Winfield Scott Hancock and William Hayden English. Arthur would become president in 1881, following the assassination of Garfield. Garfield & Arthur campaign ribbon from Heritage Auctions (HA.com)
