What was Benjamin Harrison's slogan?


Wiki User

Benjamin Harrison was the only president whose grandfather (William Henry Harrison) had also been president. Throughout his life, though, he was determined to rely on his own efforts and achievements rather than ride on his grandfather's coattails. He once told a crowd of his grandfather's admirers, "He will not build high who had not built for himself." Despite his continuous attempts to distance himself from his grandfather's fame, Harrison's campaign managers did exploit the relationship during his presidential campaign with the slogan, "Grandfather's Hat Fits Ben."

"Trade, Trade, no free trade" was Benjamin Harrison's slogan.
